About me

A little about myself, I finished university in 2014 with a degree in English with a 2:1. And before making starting my career in costume for TV/film, I gained varied experience within fashion journalism and public relations. As fashion has always been a great interest of mine, I have now been working in the TV/film industry for 3 years and would like to connect with like-minded people. I also created my own blog in October 2016 that allows me to explore my varied interest.
