Lara Blackwell grew up in a small English country town in The New Forest, before moving to London at 17 to intern for Fashion Agency Intrepid and Agent Provocateur, and eventually making the move to Sydney. She’s now Marketing and Consumer Engagement Executive at Estée Lauder, Aerin and Tom Ford Beauty. Here, Lara talks industry heroes, making meaningful change, her very British podcast obsession and how she found Future Women at just the right time.
“I was instantly drawn to Future Women as a platform that supported women. I moved to Australia from the UK a few years ago at a crucial time in the women’s movement. I wanted to be part of it and help make meaningful change locally. One of my favourite people, who introduced me to FW, is Emily Brooks. She’s also the Future Women Editor. Not only does she share equal enthusiasm for Donald Glover and his greatness, but she had also been an incredible mentor to me.
