Michelle Mone's Biography

Michelle Mone OBE is the creator of Ultimo, the UK’s leading designer lingerie brand. She has been listed as one of the top three female entrepreneurs in the UK and was recently voted as the number one woman in business by Glamour Magazine.

Michelle left school in Glasgow at 15 with no qualifications to find full-time employment, after her father was struck down by an illness leaving him confined to a wheelchair. To support her family Michelle took on a job at Labatt Brewers’ and quickly climbed the ranks from office junior to senior manager.

But it was in 1996 when her idea for Ultimo was born. Whilst attending a dinner dance with her husband Michael, Michelle was wearing a very uncomfortable cleavage enhancing bra and decided to invent a bra that was more comfortable, more innovative and more cleavage enhancing than any other bra on the market.

Michelle has established herself as one of Scotland’s biggest exports, and in 2000 she won the ‘World Young Business Achiever Award’ at the Epcot Centre, Florida.
