Accessories Designer & Creative ConsultantUnited Kingdom
About me
I am a Senior Designer and Creative Consultant with over ten years’ experience across high-end fashion and retail. After graduating from Business School with two bachelors’ degrees in Business, Law, and Marketing, I set up my eponymous jewellery brand in Australia in 2008. The brand went on to be supported by leading fashion accounts, including Browns, and Harvey Nichols. Whilst running my own brand, I also consulted for independent and high-end retailers on a freelance basis. In 2015, I relocated to London where I went on to run the jewellery and accessories departments for Oliver Bonas as Lead Accessories Designer. Having recently decided to focus exclusively on the consulting part of my business, I now help companies in their infancy stage, or existing brands wanting to broaden their product offering, develop their creative brand strategies, and design collections in line with their brand ethos. With experience in design, sales, buying and PR, I am an all-rounder with a passion for design and creative consultancy.
