About me

Over 11 years of employment within the fashion industry has taken me from the shop floor to a sales director and has molded me to become a very experienced, market aware and driven individual. I have taken great pride in working internationally and domestically with both emerging contemporary and luxury designers, as well as established commercial brands that have maintained their position in the market during turbulent times. A key part to my success in wholesale is having a ‘work till the job is done’ attitude, excellent communication skills and building strong relationships with my customers. My love for product and design is at the heart of my motivation and I would love the opportunity to develop myself further with a company that shares similar values.
