The Fold were featured amongst a high-flying set of CEOs through 85 Broads.
Cheryl Mainland and Polly McMaster co-founded The Fold in January 2011. They met at London Business School at the start of their MBA in 2009. Driven by a shared passion for fashion (but lackluster experiences shopping for work clothes in their previous careers), they launched The Fold.
The Fold designs, retails and produces clothes for women who want to look professionally chic. Their clothes are sold online and through pop-up events in major cities.
Before starting The Fold, both Polly and Cheryl had successful business careers. After graduating from Cambridge University with a PhD in Virology and a BA in Natural Sciences, Polly worked at L.E.K. Consulting and then as an investment professional at Apax Partners.
Cheryl graduated with a BA from Harvard and has worked and lived in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Australia and New Zealand. At Procter & Gamble she transformed and managed beauty care brands, SKII and Nice’N Easy across Australasia. The Fold is based in London but will be launching e-commerce in the US in November 2011.
