About me


Im an ambitious 32 year old with a background in Graphic Design and jewellery seeking experience within the fashion/millinery field. An enthusiastic and self-motivated hardworker with the drive to succeed. Valuable transferable photography and computer skills including Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom. I am organised, thrive within team environments and love solving problems. I have subsequently undertaken a millinery course with Edwina Ibbotson and Kensington and Chelsea College, which has furthered my understanding of the production process and its individual techniques. This experience has complemented by existing fashion related skills which include sewing, embroidery, beaded jewellery, and photography. I also have excellent interpersonal skills, I thrive within a team environment, have good organisational skills, am a fast learner and love solving problems. Along with my previous educational background studying Graphic Design I also am highly computer literate, have a good eye for colour, composition, texture and shape. I am a self motivated, positive, reliable and hardworking individual. I possess strong communication skills and have a proven history of great customer service. My experience in managing various stalls in London, for my personal creative business has taught me the skills needed to attract customers and drive sales. I have experience working both independently and as part of a team. I also have strong IT digital marketing skills.
