Véronique Forge-Karibian Founder of the French platform for female entrepreneurs, Business O Feminin, lets us in on her secrets to a healthy work/life balance, her go-to brands and how to succeed as a woman in business... 

Why did you create Business O Feminin? 

I had the chance to work on a show about women called Women of Exception for several years in which I interviewed women with like Christine Lagarde and Simone Veil but also business minds like Mathilde Thomas of Caudalie and artists like Dee Bridgewater. 

What fascinates me about all these women is their path in life, their thread and the entanglement of the circumstances that helped them find their way. Through Businessofeminin.com, I wanted to give all women the ability to fulfil their professional potential and develop their full personal potential. 

How do you juggle your personal life and your career? 

I am fortunate to have help with my two children who are still young. I also try to spare some time for myself – I lived in London for nine years and in that time I started playing a lot of sports, which I still love to do. In the mornings I have my rituals and begin the day by using the Calm app to meditate. It’s a great little app that helps teach a life-changing practice. 

What are the pieces in your wardrobe that make you feel most confident? 

I like to feel comfortable in my clothes and not be too overdressed. I'm pretty keen on suede jackets, especially from the brand Van Palma. I wear them with jeans by Closed or leather pants by Fête Impérial. I’m also a hat person and I love Estrée for these. 

What essentials do you always carry with you? 

I always carry a pouch that turns into an evening bag in my handbag and in terms of other essentials I really like Clio Goldbrenner's new chic and practical collection. As for beauty, I carry a survival kit comprised of Mademoiselle Saint Germain's eye cream with cucumber, Glossier's pink blush and my favourite, By Terry's rose balm for my lips. 

Long days at the office can take its toll on your skin. Tell us about your skincare routine…

Always remove make up before bed, apply a mask twice a week and stay hydrated. This season I’ve been road testing a cream by Raw Material and a pomegranate serum from Wisdom Cares. I also do a deep skin cleanse every month to maintain a healthy glow. 

Who inspires you? 

I have a lot of admiration for Arianna Huffington, the founder of the Huffington Post, whom I had the chance to meet in London. She is extremely intelligent, cultured and visionary and the proof is in her new project, Thrive Global, a media platform geared towards personal development. She has drawn on her own experiences of burn out in order to help people take a step back and enjoy the multiple aspects of their lives. 

What would you say is the secret recipe for becoming an accomplished businessperson? 
 
Finding a balance between personal and professional life and always saving a little time for yourself. Before you start, meet other entrepreneurs to exchange experiences, ideas and insights and join existing communities, like the Business O Feminine Club. We organise monthly meetings with entrepreneurs, coaches and leaders to share knowledge and give women the tools they need to succeed. 

What is your favourite motivational quote? 

I have two… "They did not know it was impossible, so they did it" – Mark Twain. "Well behaved women rarely make history." – Eleonor Roosevelt.

In this exclusive interview our Founder Nathalie Gaveau catches up with Véronique Forge-Karibian, Founder of the French site for working women Business O Feminin, to talk work/life balance, fashion, focus and how to get into the back to school mindset for the season ahead...


V: What are your tips for maintaining your zen during the busy 'back-to-school' period? 

N: The key is to organize well and take advantage of the summer holidays to sort out the essentials. Plan trips and important meetings, review plans for the last quarter and communicate your goals to the teams you manage. Suddenly, we'll find we have more time for sports and the spa, it's a virtuous circle.  

V: Who's been inspiring you this season?  

N: Jeff Bezos, he started out 15 years ago with a small online bookstore, was criticised for years by analysts and became a leader in cloud computing. Today Amazon is valued at $1000 billion. What audacity, what tenacity in his vision.

V: What quality do you admire most in women?  

N: Adaptability. Business woman, mother, wife, girlfriend, sportswoman, coach, every woman is plural and manages multiple tasks in a day, sometimes to a staggering extent.  

V: What's your daily routine like and how do you start your day?  

N: I don't really have a routine with my travels between London and Paris but I cannot live without an Earl Grey tea followed by an espresso and kisses from my husband and children first thing in the morning. A poached egg with avocado toast always tempts me and then it's on to emails, dashboards and the day begins.  

V: What are your workspace essentials?  

N: I'm a bit of a minimalist so I like a white or transparent desk with just my apple Macbook Pro on it. If possible, I like an open space with no walls around me and an inspiring view. From time to time, I'll light a candle like the La Française Sympa.  

V: Which books are by your bedside right now?  

N: The Love Dictionary of Freedom by Mathieu Laine and a pile of documents. I usually have books on all kinds on business topics. I've recently been reading the 2018 Goldman Sachs Millennial Insights study. 

V: Who are some of your favourite fashion designers?  

N: Chloé by Natacha Ramsay Levi, Diane Ducasse and always Saint Laurent.  

V: What about your 'can't live without' websites?  

N: I'm probably more into apps than sites. I use Yoga Studio for my yoga routine, Lumo Lift to help with my posture, Paleo Leap for paleo recipes, Les Echos, Elle, Bloomberg and of course Whatsapp, Instagram, Uber and Deliveroo.

V: What's your motto or favourite quote?

N: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” You must have ambition and persevere on your journey.

Louisa Drake is a force to be reckoned with. A fitness expert, business founder and a serious source of lifestyle inspo, Louisa recently launched LDM, a fitness and lifestyle brand built on the principles of her own inclusive training method and her no-nonsense approach to health and wellness.   

We caught up with her to find out more about LDM, her motivations and of course, her style both in and out of the studio…   

So how does your method work? How can LDM sessions influence your lifestyle?  

At LDM we focus on body confidence and effective training techniques that educate clients on what their individual bodies need. My Method offers a host of fitness disciplines – cardio, conditioning, resistance and stretch – to keep the mind and body guessing and strengthen the muscles you use daily.   

Our whole approach is to encourage confidence, so the Fitzrovia and Muswell Hill studios are a welcoming space where our instructors will calmly guide you through a class, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and well worked, but never worked up and stressed.  

Who can take part in LDM classes?  

LDM classes are accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience, fitness level, shape or size. We have two boutique studios in London, where you can access small group classes and private training daily. We also have LDM online video subscriptions and range of fitness equipment and apparel for taking part at home.  

What inspired you to launch LDM – tell us about your journey...   

After a professional dance career I started to transition into teaching dance and fitness. I was known for my unique style and had several disciplines under my belt but I realised there was something lacking from the workouts I was doing as a client at other gyms and studios.  

I saw a gap for doing things my way and created LDM. After combining the best bits of popular disciples such as yoga, HIIT, Pilates to name just a few I created my signature total body workout that ticks all the boxes in one session – the Shape Changer, the perfect balance of cardio and conditioning material.   

Next month we celebrate our first birthday at our Fitzrovia studio which offers a range of LDM classes that are constantly being fine tuned to suit our clients’ needs.  

What does the word ‘wellness’ mean to you?  

Wellness really sums up being at your optimal best physically and mentally. For me it’s about finding the right balance – time to focus on my changing needs, to honour my own rhythms and have the energy to achieve everything I need.  

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

My clients. Most mornings I’m either up early teaching group classes or I’m with a private client. The occasion I have a morning free, I’ll top up on sleep or schedule some time for myself on the mat.  

How important do you think physical health is to how happy and confident we feel?

Massively important. It should be the main reason you choose to work out and aesthetics are the bonus. The natural high we get from exercise is what keeps you committed.  

What about fashion and style – can what we wear make us happy?  

Absolutely, wearing something that helps you feel happy will be the reason your posture improves which will then be part of the reason your confidence improves and you carry yourself differently. You can express yourself through fashion and your own unique take on it. 

What are your feel-good outfits for work, the weekend and going out?  

I spend a lot of time in activewear and when I'm working out and training clients it’s all about supportive, feel-good fabrics. I select a sweat-wicking product that’s going to work hard for me when I’m back to back and versatile items that mean after a quick change I’m ready to go from studio to meeting.   

When I’m off-duty it’s a mix of denim, fun prints, slogan tees and a vintage feel is always present in my style. For going out I add some standout accessories, switch a trainer for shoe and opt for a dress or cool jumpsuit.  

What about your favourite brands?

Activewear brands such as Sweaty Betty, Lululemon, Lucas Hugh, Nike and Adidas keep me supported and stylish. For tees and sweaters I like British brand Double Trouble Gang – we collaborated on some limited edition LDM sweaters & hoodies. I also love brands such as Etre Cecile and Sezane for an injection of fun prints and slogan pieces.   

Free People, Reformation, ADAY, Faithfull the brand, Ganni and the Vampire’s Wife are labels I gravitate towards. I have some great jackets from Zoe Karssen, Whistles and Acne and my accessories are a mix of high street, vintage and investment pieces from Hill and Friends, Sezane, Laura Lee and Missoma.  

I’m often in trainers by Adidas, Nike and APL and I’m currently loving the Stella McCartney x Adidas Parley shoes made from recycled ocean plastics – they work for all cardio based workouts. Veja make eco-friendly Parisian cool trainers that I like for off-duty and I also like Russell & Bromley, Birkenstock, Soludos, Hobbs and Miu Miu.  

What’s next for you and for LDM? 

Plans are underway to open a bigger standalone LDM studio in London where clients can still benefit from small boutique group fitness and private training with more space and amenities. We have some exciting opportunities in the pipeline and I’m working hard to build up our online LDM video offerings, so we are accessible not just in London but anywhere and at anytime. Watch this space…

A well-crafted bag is the perfect daytime accessory for men that are always on the go. Sure, it’s easy to just rock a sporty backpack, but why go for one when instead, you could opt for something guaranteed to take your outfit up a notch. From messenger bags to backpacks and briefcases, we’ve selected the best for the new season, so you don’t have to… 


The multipurpose backpack

Go for a black leather backpack for a casual day outfit that you can sport from the office to the gym. Opt for a bag with different compartments so that you can safely store your laptop away from your other essentials. 

The updated briefcase 

For a more classic look, choose a briefcase in a neutral color versatility is key for a successful business wardrobe. 

The messenger bag 

Bigger, bolder and definitely a more creative look, go for a messenger bag that you can easily hold from classes to the gym to drinks.

How do you like striped skirts? I want to show you my favourite ones. These gorgeous striped skirts are very elegant, girly and fashionable as well. If you don't you know what you wear at an important meeting, at the business event, for a girly night out, just choose a striped skirt from my list and wear it. You can easily combine these skirts with high heels, or sneakers, slippers, too. Look for a monochrome / solid top (it may be white or black - it doesn't matter) and be a pretty lady.

Pearls have always been a mainstay of chic women. Made famous by Coco Chanel herself, the simple, monochrome touch that a well-placed pearl necklace achieves is timeless.


Pearls are great for playing it safe so until now, they’ve been associated with twin sets and tea dresses than fashion-forward models and bloggers.

Things have changed… pearls are back in business and the bigger the better. We’re seeing pearl accessories everywhere, from the runway to our favourite fashion blogs with minimalist twists and punk accents galore. 

Want to pull off pearls like a cool girl? Take a look at our round-up of the best pearly pieces to invest in for a twist on a fashion classic….
