Holly Allenby is the founder of THE-ACEY.

THE-ACEY is an online store selling stylish and ethical womenswear. Holly founded it because she felt there was a gap in the market for genuinely stylish women’s clothes produced consciously – “style with purpose”.

Brands are selected on the basis of their social and environmental impact, from fabric used to labour standards in production.

THE-ACEY has been featured in the Telegraph, Guardian, FT, Marie Claire and Vogue.

Holly joined Expert Impact for a mentoring session with Patrick Grant, the menswear designer behind tailoring house E Tautz.

“Don’t get side-tracked. Stay focused!”

Patrick had expertise across all areas of the fashion industry. He had great relatable advice that I will use going forward. After an hour of his time I left feeling enthusiastic and ready to take THE-ACEY to the next level!
