My fashion career spans many years - I have been lucky enough to work in more than one of my dream jobs. Having worked at net-a-porter.com in London, Harper's Bazaar and Vogue in Australia and now editing, designing and writing for ownmuse.com and startafashionblog.com.
My pen name is Harper. My birth name is Bec. I write under Harper for several reasons. Firstly when I started blogging I was still at Vogue and we are under contract not start fashion or beauty blogs under our real name. As editors of the print magazine part of our roles is to contribute content to online. Having a blog of the same subject matter is considered a breach of this content.
Secondly, I am a mum (life goes quick) and a busy one at that, becoming my alter ego when I blog helps me quickly transition into the style, fashion, beauty editor I need to be to create content.
Thirdly, this is slightly random but when I was at school a friend changed her name - I found this really curious and inspiring. I love my family name for many reasons but it also sometimes doesn't seem to fit me. Harper is the curious girl I want to be but in an understated and not too in your face way.
