About me


I’m an enthusiastic individual that has the ambition and drive to fulfil an exciting career specialising in the Fashion PR & events industry. Having completed a degree that included a year in industry, I feel I have accumulated a mixture of practical, theoretical and creative skills that are invaluable in the workplace and I am looking for unique opportunities to utilize and further develop my skills in order to put my first steps on the career ladder. Throughout my time at university I gained skills covering all areas of the fashion industry ranging from marketing through to magazine production, but specifically in organisation and time management juggling multiple projects. When completing projects I prefer a very hands-on approach, feeling as confident working individually as I am as part of a team. Working in the fashion industry is something I have a real passion for, and I am always willing to go the extra mile in order to succeed. I am a big music fan and an avid festival goer, and would like to think I have a good sense of humour!
