I joined Drapers as Editor in Chief in March 2011 and head up the editorial team across the magazine, website and events. My background is in the wider B2B market where I ran magazines including The Publican, Theme magazine and, briefly, Travel Trade Gazette, as well as working in communications and government relations, before moving into fashion. Those who know me best would say I like to tell it like it is, don’t suffer fools gladly and have a somewhat surreal sense of humour but hopefully also that I have enormous passion for business journalism and for my newly adopted and hugely inspiring sector, fashion. In fact, I am honoured to be running a publication with 125 years of history behind it in an industry that demonstrates such creativity and drive and is so crucial to UK trade both home and abroad. If you have time to drop me a line with your thoughts on any of the issues we cover, or indeed your comments on Drapers and what we do, then please do at Caroline.Nodder@Emap.com, I would genuinely love to hear from you. https://twitter.com/carolinenodder
