The list is fiercely contested, hotly anticipated and we’re thrilled to announce that Vanessa Murray, Head of Ladieswear at A Hume has made the cut alongside professionals from the retail giants: Topshop, Oasis, Superdry, Hugo Boss, Harvey Nichols and Liberty.


Vanessa began her retail career in 2010 in the Barbour concession at Jenners in Edinbugh. She joined A Hume Country Clothing in 2012, tasked with growing the ladieswear department. Since then she has made an outstanding contribution.



Stunned at the news, Vanessa said: “I’ve always aspired to make the 30 under 30 list. I never imagined I’d make it, certainly not aged 25. I’m very grateful for the support and opportunity I’ve had at A Hume.”


Archie is full of praise: “We’re delighted for Vanessa. Being named on the Drapers’ 30 under 30 list is a great accolade for Vanessa, and our business. It should serve as inspiration to young people working in retail all over Scotland. There’s a big wide world out there and you can work north of the border and be part of it.”
