The campaign involves a dynamic line-up of inspiring women including actress Emma Thompson, singer-songwriter Annie Lennox OBE, Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon OBE, East London fashion entrepreneur LuLu Kennedy, television chef Rachel Khoo, Supermodel and UN goodwill ambassador Alex Wek and singer Rita Ora. The stunning images were taken by iconic fashion photographer, Annie Lebovitz and showcases the M&S S/S 2014 collection which will be available from 31st March.
Roma’s feature in this campaign is a great example of the growing recognition of women in the engineering and manufacturing industry and we hope that many young females will be inspired by her feature in this campaign. In a recent tweet, Roma said “Excited and overwhelmed at the amazing support for
#leadingladies” and said she was delighted to share the image above.
Her profile on the M&S website reads:
