  • The broad curriculum on the Fashion Media & Promotion course has ensured I have developed a deep understanding of how fashion brands work, and how to promote them through all forms of media including photography, film making, online platforms, publications, digital marketing, public relations and social media. Now in my final year of study, I plan to tailor and enhance these skills to further support the outcomes of all final major projects.

Rochester Cathedral

  • Having delivered the winning pitch to Rochester Cathedral for this project, in response to the Cathedrals desire to simultaneously appeal to a younger audience and raise awareness of medieval manuscript 'Textus Roffensis', I am now proudly working towards executing the Cathedrals first ever "Silent Disco in the Crypt" with guidance from both the University and Cathedral teams.
