Sutton has always been a hard worker because she had to be. Her background was such that she knew she couldn’t live her adult life giving anything less than her best, that the most important thing about any potential career was the financial stability attached. But as well as she set herself up by getting a finance degree and clawing her way to an enviable job at Scarlet, she wasn’t satisfied; after years of suppressing her dreams for the reality of adulthood, she wanted to give the fashion industry a shot, as she knew she’d regret it if she never tried a more creative career. But as much as Sutton might want a career based on hems and trends over dividends, will she be able to be as upwardly mobile as she would like? How would she handle it if things don’t come as quickly to her as she would’ve liked?
