June Kenton
Chair: Vanessa Feltz


June Kenton transformed Rigby & Peller into, arguably, the world’s leading lingerie brand, counting Her Majesty the Queen among her many illustrious clients. June revolutionized the bra-fitting world by discarding tape measure to use only her eyes as measurement and judgement. June’s extraordinary commercial success is far from her only achievement. This entertaining and life-enhancing memoir absorbingly draws together the many strands of her dynamic life.
