About me

Following my graduation, I completed a styling assistant internship gaining experience and professional knowledge, working on editorial and beauty shoots. My responsibilities included assisting on set, pulling clothes and looks in relation to the given brief, call-ins and returns, liaising with PR companies, creating mood boards for future projects and other general administrative tasks in support of the stylist. Following this internship, I have assisted several other stylists on a freelance basis, allowing me to gain more experience in preparing for editorial and beauty shoots with on set assistance and general administrative support. I have enjoyed working in a fast-paced environment and relish the creative energy that flows from generating innovative imagery for print and online publications. I have become very interested in trend forecasting, tracing the roots and influences from which current fashion imagery and trends emerge. In my spare time, I have produced my own print magazine titled ‘feast, for the hungry eyed’; an independent style magazine for the innovative youth, delivering content encompassing style, photography and culture. feast was showcased at London Graduate Fashion Week. I also work on freelance styling projects, produce written content for creative projects, and update my portfolio/website wherever possible. I am a social and enthusiastic individual. Flexible in both my ability to work alone and as part of a team, I have confidence to learn in a fast-paced environment. I am able to adapt to any situation and use my initiative to complete tasks and meet deadlines. Having enjoyed relative experience through internships and freelancing, I am able to balance having fun at work whilst maintaining a professional and focussed work ethic.
