About me

 

A keen and hardworking individual, always wanting to learn something new and to stay creative. With my interests lying in fashion, design and the arts, I have gained good experience working in fashion retail and improved my knowledge by taking on extra short courses at the London College of Fashion. Throughout the two years of studying costume for my foundation degree, I took part in many work placements as a costume/designers’ assistant and have since worked freelance on several theatre projects. I enjoy being given tasks where I can be organised and creative; I am always friendly and always looking for a challenge.
