Communications CoordinatorLondon, United Kingdom
About me
Communicator from London. Following her years studying BA Graphic Communication and MA Fashion Communication at CSM, she has translated her skills from her degrees into projects that have explored race, introspection and social influence in obscure, yet aesthetically challenging ways. Over the last year, she has been apart of the project and stylist teams for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Fashion District and now currently the EDI (Equality, Diversity & Inclusion) team at UAL, whilst writing on racial issues of growing up in contemporary London for Fashion Unfiltered and the disfigured representation of the Black female within contemporary fashion image. As a communicator, academic and writer, her interests lay in the the slow incline of the exhibition of Black UK culture and diversity within the fashion and higher education industries.
