Tracy brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to House of Fraser from her time on the shop floor via Duty Free to the buying office.

An eclectic beauty consumer herself, Tracy uses products from a diverse mix of brands such as Laura Mercier, La Prairie and Giorgio Armani Cosmetics alongside more luxury niche products such as Tom Ford Private Blends.
