academic environment had given her the
opportunity to be as creative as possible without risk, but now it was time to put these
skills to the test.
While strategising with her key
seamstress, Genta hit on an idea that
would prove to be the saving grace
of her business.
" That day I was wearing a headband, and
that was it. It's small, it's trendy. I saw Kate
Middleton wearing a headband at Archie's
christening, and thought, let's do that! "
With a concept that her seamstress could
work on from home, the pair set  about
gathering as much fabric as possible before
the lockdown started on 23rd March. The
instructions were simple: one month to
make as many headbands as possible, and
they had to be perfect. No stains, no pulled
threads. While her seamstress worked,

Genta focused on creating the brand and
setting up a website through which the
headbands could be sold.
" Honestly, it was so exciting. I didn't have
time to think about COVID-19. It took me a
year to create Alexia Alterations; it took me
one month to launch the headbands. It's
surreal what you can do when you have to.
And really fun! "
Géraldine London launched in April and
turned a profit in just three weeks. Doing
everything in-house - from e-commerce
to marketing - meant that Genta's only
expense was her seamstress. Her abundance
of networking skills had a ready-made fanbase keen to purchase, and she benefited
from great PR after deciding to donate
20 percent of her profits to Women's Aid, a
British charity dedicated to ending domestic
abuse against women and children.

" I'm aware that I'm very lucky to have a
partner with a full-time job, and who is working from home and very nice to be around.
So many women are stuck at home in bad
situations. "
Genta is also aware that her home life has
helped her significantly in maintaining an
income while Alexia Alterations is closed.
" I don't have any children, so I don't judge
entrepreneurs who are not able to keep up
with things. I was resilient, but I also had circumstances that allowed me to be resilient. "
The new business was almost a victim of
its own success, with product selling out
faster than new items could be made. But
when lockdown eased, Genta decided that
Géraldine London was here to stay. In
early November the brand scored its first
major fashion coup, seeing comedian and
actor Katherine Ryan styled in a Géraldine
