About me

 

As a recent graduate from Robert Gordon University, with a first class honours degree in Fashion Management, I have undertaken several internships within creative production agencies and PR houses. These experiences have enabled me to develop not only specific fashion industry experience, but also a valuable and transferable skill set in this fast-paced sector. Attended the Leonardo Da Vinci University in Paris for a Summer French Intensive Language, Culture and Business Program in 2012 and the Centre for Sustainable Fashion of London College of Fashion for a Fashioning the Future Summer School in 2013. These were educationally and culturally enriching experiences where I interacted easily with like-minded students across a network of nationalities. The intensive collaborative design brief at the Fashioning the Future summer school. enhanced my critical thinking, interdisciplinary working and adaptability. I am an ambitious individual with a willingness to contribute, offering a strong work ethic and history of high achievement in study and work. Life Mantra: optimistic but realistic
