I have had the great pleasure of working with Louise McCabe since 2004. Louise single handedly championed the CSR cause at ASOS in the early years to a point where it is now market leading in its Fashion with Integrity programme. A true professional, Louise is very knowledgeable in the area and combines practical thinking with commercial reality.
At a time when it is vital that the fashion sector re-evaluates prosperity in order to be relevant, viable and credible, we need credible, knowledgeable, wonderful people like Tara Luckman, who is all of these things, plus a fantastic collaborator and trusted partner. Tara’s knowledge and understanding of fashion and sustainability is exemplary and together with the great expertise of Louise McCabe, Flourish is an exciting new manifestation of their combined abilities to create and guide businesses with a purpose.
Louise has supported me in growing my manufacturing business SOKO-Kenya for over 10 years. Together we also developed an extensive community programme in the Kasigau region of Kenya, building an impactful partnership between the ASOS Foundation and my charity, the SOKO Community Trust.
Louise has the amazing talent of out-of-the box creative thinking whilst always being grounded in commerciality and business wisdom. It is an absolute pleasure working with Louise and through our work together she has created an amazing legacy of thriving projects.
Illen is very knowledgeable about the charity sector, a true professional and a great advocate for the power of partnerships and how companies and charities can make a meaningful impact in local communities.
I have had the pleasure of working with Illen since 2017 on our Prince’s Trust partnership with ASOS Foundation. Illen was the most fantastic advocate for The Prince’s Trust and worked hard to create in-house programmes across Tech, Customer Care and Fashion, empowering young people with the skills and confidence to transform their lives. He brilliantly inspired teams and volunteers across ASOS to be part of these programmes and to share their skills and insight with young people.
On top of that, Illen brilliantly drove our partnership – unlocking new opportunities, inspiring the ASOS community and helping raise vital funds so that the Prince’s Trust can do even more as a charity.
Louise and I worked together for a number of years on a successful partnership between ASOS and the British Paralympic Association while I was the Commercial Director there. ASOS designed bespoke ceremony and formal wear for ParalympicsGB in Rio (2016) and Pyeong Chang (2018).
Louise has a collaborative, authentic and creative approach that helped create a bond between our very different organisations. She understood our brand and its global context, the particular needs of athletes and sports professionals, and the importance of an ethical supply chain.
