Jessica Igoe

PositionBoutique Supervisor

About MeAs an Architectural History Graduate, my love of everything design does not stop with Architecture and Interior. Fashion has always been a significant influencer in my life.

From the classic and timeless style of Coco Chanel to the rock n' roll influence of Zadig and Voltaire, my style incorporates characteristics from all.

I am an avid skier and love nothing more than being in the Alps, slope style spotting.

Having worked within the fashion industry for over six years, I am delighted to become part of the Jane Davidson team and express my creativity and love of everything luxury within the store.

Jilly Hamilton

PositionPersonal Shopper

About MeI’ve been part of the Jane Davidson team since 2005, but have known Jane and Sarah since 1982, when I returned from 4 hazy, crazy years in London.

Fashion has been in my life since leaving art college, in one way or another…Modelling it, buying it, selling it and wearing it!

I do love Edinburgh, but I have caught the travel bug, so you’ll find me jetting off at the drop of a hat. Just give me a load of sunshine, a glass of bubbly with great friends and family, and I’m a happy bunny.

Mandy Robinson

PositionPersonal Shopper

About MeI have been fortunate enough to have worked in the luxury retail industry for over 25 years. During this time I have managed a designer boutique and worked with some amazing labels and people. I have also worked with a fabulous team in a Personal Shopping Department in a major store.

Being able to work with luxury items really makes you appreciate the way these pieces are made and how good they can make you feel. I really enjoy putting my knowledge and creative eye to use helping men and women look fantastic.

I would say my own style is quite eclectic , my favourite designers are Lanvin, Dries Van Noten, Marni, Queene & Belle and Stephanie Laird to mention a few (but the list could go on and on.) Flowers that put a smile on my face are peonies and hydrangeas. My favourite brunch is Eggs Benedict and a glass of prosecco.

Favourite Quote'I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.' Audrey Hepburn
