Freya Martin is a writer and editor who explores style, art, travel, and popular culture. She is interested in finding playful and peculiar stories that would not otherwise be covered. Most recently she has edited and led the design of Clamour, a lifestyle magazine which acts as an alternative to anodyne glossy publications, as a means of providing optimism for young people living in Britain despite the social and political climate. Graduating from BA Fashion Journalism at Central Saint Martins in 2020, her work experience ranges from research, archive, and editorial work at the Financial Times, to collaborating on content-led projects at COS Communications, to babysitting for rent money. She has interviewed a variety of high profile subjects, including fashion designer, Margaret Howell; photographer, Jamie Hawkesworth; BAFTA-winning director and story-writer of This Country, Tom George; and Channel 4 News anchorman, Jon Snow. Along with writing, she enjoys research-led projects, experimenting with graphic design and washing her hands thoroughly.
- CLAMOURClamour is a style and culture magazine for young people disillusioned by the anodyne glossy. (And the end of the world. We’re quite cut up about that one too.) Clamour covers stories like legendary Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow’s extensive tie collection, and the film industry’s new way to shoot ethical sex scenes. There’s no typical Clamour girl, but she probably feels as strongly about Marks & Spencer’s lingerie, Coke Zero, and the defiantly ugly interiors of rich people’s houses as editors F
