Fashion & Lifestyle Journalist and CopywriterLondon, United Kingdom
About me
Features and fashion journalist and copywriter with bylines in Refinery29, Grazia, Stylist, HelloGiggles and HuffPost, amongst others. I am always open to commissions and would love to hear from you! Portfolio: www.esthernewman.co.uk. Email: esthernewman1346@btinternet.com. I have a particular interest in digital culture, the intersection between fashion and social issues, feminism and youth trends. In 2019 I graduated from the London College of Fashion with a MA in Fashion Journalism (Distinction). For my MA final project I founded The Activist Magazine, a fashion and arts publication dedicated to celebrating women and non-binary people in politics and protest. You can see extracts of this on my website at https://www.esthernewman.co.uk/the-activist.
