About this podcast

Bernadette Gledhill has become a well known name in the Yorkshire fashion industry and after hearing her name mentioned in many conversations over the years I knew I had to meet her.

Bernadette started modelling at the age of 14 and has carved a successful career in the fashion industry ever since. Not only through the modelling but her passion for helping others through her style and confidence coaching and the many runway events she's created.
