About me
Graduate Fashion Foundation Fashion Publication Award Winner 2020 - Graduate Fashion Week at London Fashion Week A fashion-led photographer and creative director, with 3 years of demonstrated diverse experience working freelance for companies such as Refinery29 and Hundred Showroom. With a visually creative and open mind set, I work through doing. My adaptability and attention to detail has allowed me to thrive in collaborative and individual projects and environments. In a constantly evolving industry, I generate innovative ideas at a fast pace. My curious nature allows me to flourish in situations where I’m proactively looking for new ways to challenge the industry norms. Most recently I created a publication, Woman Up, exploring women in male dominated sports, which won the Graduate Fashion Foundation Fashion Publication Award 2020. I am a passionate, energetic and organised professional with a 1st class honours BA in Fashion Art Direction; focused in Photography, Creative Direction and Fashion Publications.
