She currently manages the womenswear trend and design division and gets great enjoyment from working with an innovative and creative team, travelling the world and collecting information to assist the business in making the right fashion calls.

Amber Jones joined Mr. Price as a trends researcher and forecaster in 2005 following a brief spell in manufacturing and after completing a 4-year fashion degree at Linea Academy in Durban.

Running parallel with her trending, she has recently added the design of two Mr Price labels to her portfolio.
