I am a recent graduate from the University of Edinburgh looking to pursue a career in fashion. I am particularly interested in buying, although I would also love a more creative role within the industry: styling, personal shopping, digital media etc. Having lived in Paris for a year, working within the industry as a production assistant, I would love to move abroad again to experience new cultures, aesthetics, people, and of course, food.
