About Trinny Woodall

Trinny Woodall (born Sarah-Jane Woodall; 8 February 1964 in Marylebone, London) is an English fashion advisor and designer, television presenter and author. She was raised in a wealthy family and was privately educated. After ten years working in marketing and battling alcoholism Woodall met Susannah Constantine in 1994, whom she joined to write a weekly fashion column for The Daily Telegraph. This led to the launch of their own internet fashion-advice business and the release of their first fashion-advice book, both of which ventures ended in failure. They were then commissioned by the BBC to host What Not to Wear in 2001. The following year Woodall and Constantine released their second book, What Not to Wear, which gained them a British Book Award and sold over 670,000 copies. The pair co-wrote many fashion advice books, several of which became bestsellers in the United Kingdom and the United States, and have now sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide.
