Gemma Purnell - Founder
With an interest in Fashion and Design Gemma took a part time Art & Design course at her local college. Whilst studying, to support herself, she took a part time position at a local boutique lingerie store in Dorchester. Within a short period of time, she graduated to shop manager and started to develop the shops online offering and exposure.
Working in a small boutique shop allowed her to gain and broaden the knowledge and experience required in the lingerie industry and lead to a rather more exciting career path.
With some youthful enthusiasm, a bit of naivety and a whole lot of encouragement, she decided to embark on setting up her own business in August 2014. Knicker Locker officially launched on the 2nd of October 2015.
Gemma enjoys reading books, spending time with her family and painting.
