Writer & Creative CopywriterLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I am a freelance writer, fashion journalist and creative copywriter. A member of the National Union of Journalism, graduating from London College of Fashion with a degree in Fashion Journalism. Notably a fashion fanatic, I have written widely about fashion and culture. With a wide variety of writing experience I have written numerous analyses of catwalks and fashion features for publications such as Overdue Magazine and _shift, as well as articles and interviews for Harper’s Bazaar UK, French Fries Magazine and Fashion Crossover London to name a few. When undertaking my studies at LCF, I also worked at several publications to gain further experience of the journalistic industry. Interning at British Vogue, Sunday Times Style and Dazed & Confused; provided me the experience to expand my writing style, honouring the ability to tailor content for different audiences. In addition to journalistic and academic writing, I am also currently working as a freelance creative copywriter for the fashion brand, MaxMARA. Focusing on a different style of writing, I am tasked with producing creative copy as well as product naming and brand encapsulation, enhancing the brand’s identity and tone of voice. I am a keen creative with an abundance of experience. In addition to the journalistic industry, I also have a sound understanding of the PR & Marketing previously working as a PR Manager and Social Media Coordinator. With an extensive list of contacts, I am prolific in PR, social media, gif-databases and producing all-round creative content.
