We love to shine a spotlight on the very cool people who work in our stores and head office because they’re the ones who ‘live’ the rebellious, unique Dr. Martens brand… and know how to seriously rock a pair of Doc’s of course.
Meet Jasmine, our Men’s Fashion and Collaboration Category Assistant here in our Camden office. We caught up with her to find out more about her style inspiration, favourite music and of course everything Doc’s below…
Hey I’m Jasmine, the Category Assistant for Men’s Fashion and Collaborations at Dr. Martens in the Product team for just about a year now! I was previously living between Leicester and Nottingham, but I’ve now I’m settled in London.
What Dr. Martens product are you wearing in your photo?
Our collaboration shoe with Colette, the concept store in Paris. It’s the 1461 in White with glossy dots, and a Colette-blue DM’s sole!
Tell us about your first Dr. Martens:
I used to work for another footwear retailer growing up, and I remember saving all of my wages to buy my first pair of 1460 Black Smooths of course. I proudly wore them to Leeds Festival that summer, but left them in my tent because of the warm weather and unfortunately the tent was raided and my beloved 1460s were stolen, ha.
I never replaced them, but now I have a ridiculous collection of Doc’s, so it makes up for it.
How would you describe your style?
I’d love to say I have a particular aesthetic but I’m very non-committal and I like to try it all, at least once. Interesting sleeves are the flavour of the month for me.
But my fall back, everyday go-to uniform is some kind of loose, baggy top and let one statement piece do the talking.
I’m also loving that the 00’s fashion is coming back. It’s about time.
Three tracks you’re listening to right now:

What’s your favourite thing about the city you live in?
It’s hard to choose – there’s new surprises and something else to discover in London everyday.
If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
@coco_pinkprincess. She gives me life.
What are your top three product picks this season?
1. The Jemison boot – I love a chunky creeper sole.
2. The 1461 Ghillie – the ghillie lace comes from an old pair of Docs our Design team found in a vintage store in Japan!
3. Jadon, but being able to find them is like gold dust.
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Does 20/20 vision count? If not, then being able to breathe underwater!
What do you stand for?
Being un-apologetically true to yourself.
