Bertie Brandes grew up in North-West London and went to a small school in Golders Green where they taught her to question all authority and spend as much time as possible getting lost on Hampstead Heath (it's still surprisingly easy!). After graduating from an English degree she became fashion editor at VICE magazine and began writing for The Observer and The Sunday Times among others. She is now a fully freelance journalist and stylist, running a small magazine called The Mushpit which aims to breach the gap between J-17 and Private Eye. Bertie lives in Hackney with her sexy boyfriend and their beloved projector.
