About me

 

-- "To achieve harmony in bad taste is the height of elegance." -Jean Genet I am an imaginative and fresh designer / trend director. Always curious, I am a keen researcher naturally drawn to the music world and visual arts. Very inspired by objects, human behaviour (and the humour in it), my strong love of storytelling and the power of images is where my greatest passion lies. My experience in design and trend based environments has given me a clear insight into the professional fashion and research world; I recognize the needs and track the information that feeds the trends in consumer and market behaviour, piecing out the magic together to tell the story of a brand while finding and connecting the details that would give life to a product. I have developed a strong vision and a sharp eye for unique taste and make sure to reflect my cultural influences into all I do and create.
