Hello! I’m Lisa Cadroy, a stylist, fashion journalist and brand consultant, with over fifteen years of experience in the industry as Fashion Director on national newspapers and magazines including LOOK, The Sun and The Daily Mirror.
I’ve spent years creating fashion pages, writing stories, travelling around the world on shoots, styling books, appearing as a style expert on TV and radio and even created my own collections for high street fashion chains.
In 2012 I started writing rqyp as a way of keeping my creative juices flowing while on maternity leave with my second child – and it’s now grown into an award-nominated site with a loyal and engaged audience.
I live with my husband James and our two children, Charlie aged 8 and Lila, aged 6. We swapped urban South East London for gorgeous countryside on the Essex / Suffolk border at the end of 2015.
rqyp is my take on style, shopping and more. I hope you enjoy it!
