Creating a Second Career in the Fashion Industry

  • 18 Fitzhardinge Street London, England, W1H 6EQ United Kingdom (map)

Lily Advisory is delighted to invite you to this exclusive evening with number35 boutique and founder Andrea Cecile Cohen.

Growing up in Yorkshire, Andrea Cecile Cohen spent many a summer holiday working in her grandfather’s menswear factory which manufactured for companies such as Burberry and Burtons. Key to her understanding of what made a perfectly tailored garment was watching the quality controllers nitpick over the smallest detail to ensure that the finished product left the factory faultless. She also helped out at her mother’s ladies wear store, and these two defining experiences proved to be a great asset in developing her passion for clothing and retail.

After a successful career with brands such as Next, Czech & Speake of Jermyn Street, Royal Auping , in 2004 while on a business trip in Europe, Andrea came up with the concept for number 35. For some time she had grown immensely aware of the uninspiring and ill-fitting offerings available for modern business women on the high street and in department stores. Using this as her spur, Andrea vowed to create a brand with great styling, luxurious fabrics and tailoring that would celebrate the female form and offer professional women an inner sense of wellbeing and confidence in the working environment.

Join us to hear Andrea's inspiration story, explore the beautiful clothes and have a chance to connect with like-minded wonderful women over a glass of bubbly.

If you will decide to purchase any clothes during the evening, we will refund your ticket price within that.


number35 creates simple, elegant clothing, designed to imbue professional women with a heightened sense of style and confidence. 

Recognising the importance of building a strong and versatile wardrobe, number35 works with each client to customise an interchangeable selection of timeless pieces. Constructed of luxurious Italian fabrics and made in London, the clothes are designed to feel comfortable, flatter the form and travel well. 

number35’s vision is to inspire and to empower the modern working-woman through dress.
