We will first introduce to you Baroness Michelle Mone, the co-founder and CEO of Ultimo and is also a parliamentarian, aspects that made her famous and popular all over the world.

In fact, even at a very young age, she already started working to earn a living and was even forced to stop schooling due to her father’s illness.
