"Mary Martin London was invited as part of Taylor Wimpey’s celebration of Black History Month 2021 to give an online talk to the PLC staff followed by a questions and answers session. We chose Mary as an inspirational figure from the creative industries and also as a leading example of entrepreneurship. Mary took us on a journey from how her interest in fashion and technical skills in clothes making began in childhood, through later events in her life, her adult education, and how she emerged from being a student to forming her eponymous fashion art company. In the context of Black History Month, Mary also shared personal experiences of her challenges and successes along the way to becoming a commercially successful and critically acclaimed fashion artist. She also gave a live demonstration of how to make clothes using hand-drawn patterns. Mary provided an international context to her work by discussing her overseas shows and exhibitions. Mary’s dynamic and informative talk was very well received by all attendees who all appreciated learning more about both Mary and her work. We were very privileged to host Mary Martin London and look forward to hearing about her continuing success as her brand grows and develops even further." - Stuart, Head of Planning, Taylor Wimpey

"Mary Martin London gave a talk to the African and Caribbean Heritage Guides at the V&A Museum. Mary's talk took us on a journey through childhood to the fashion artist /designer that she is today; Her transformation from a ‘mature’ fledgling fashion student to the fashion artist that now produces extraordinary works of fashion art for worldwide fashion runways and for couture designs for her celebrity clientele. I personally found Mary's talk to be inspirational.  She spoke a narrative that was encouraging with an honesty that recognised the challenges of her personal and professional experiences. We look forward to seeing and hearing more of Mary Martin at the V&A in the future." - Kim, African & Caribbean Heritage Guide, V&A

"I found Mary London's personal account of her journey both moving and inspirational. Mary shared insight, determination and strength. This was evident in her creativity. I feel that Mary's work will continue to gain increased exposure in the UK. It's a great testimony to Mary's work for the accolades she has already received." - Nkechi, African Heritage Guide
