A little about myself, I finished university in 2014 with a degree in English with a 2:1 and as you can see from my attached CV I have varied experience within fashion journalism, public relations and costume. As fashion has always been a great interest of mine I would love to pursue a career within costume for television and film or within either fashion marketing/writing or branding in the the near future. I also created my own blog in October 2016 that allows me to explore my varied interest. I also discuss my romantic life in an attempt to have my very own Sex and the City inspired life!Locked Pro Plan feature
