Dutton launches Misticon snowboarding range

Charlotte Dutton, a former world cup snowboarder and model, is launching her own range of snowboarding clothes for next season through her Misticon fashion label.

Ms Dutton, who has won medals at international level, is selling her new sports range online and through 12 stockists throughout the UK and in ski-resorts in Europe and the US. The 29-year-old said: "I hope eventually to open my own high-street shops, but for now I'm looking to sell both the fashion and sportswear in ski-resorts and other sportswear shops." The former Top Shop, Storm and Pretty Polly model – who has broken many of the bones in her body – learnt to snowboard at Hillingdon dry-ski slope for several years before winning a scholarship to train at a Vermont snowboarding school.
