My names Jennifer Wheeler and I specialise in fashion marketing, PR, styling and content creation. I started my own clothing brand that I grew on social media with zero advertising budget. I built a social following and gained such strong brand awareness I ended up with two Topshop concessions and ten wholesalers. I was the youngest person to have a Topshop concession. I later joined Drop Dead as the PR and Marketing Manager. I worked on the progression of their social following to gain 770K followers on Instagram, 800k on Facebook and 250k on Twitter. I helped to build a dedicated fan base who would also use the brand as a community not just to buy product. The clothing company was run by a small team therefore I got to creative direct, coordinate and style lookbook, ecommerce and campaign photoshoots. I had the opportunity to coordinate a shoot in the US for a official licensed global campaign for Jurassic Park. I also got to head the marketing campaigns for collaborations with HBO for Game of Thrones, Universal for Jurassic Park and Sega for Sonic the Hedgehog. I really enjoyed the creative, coordination and styling aspect of my role at Drop Dead so I started to take on projects and work on my portfolio outside of Drop Dead. I joined Jadore Models management and left my role to pursue a career in styling. I have gained experience with Kim Howells, Fashion Editor of Hunger Magazine and Alexis Knox, Celebrity Stylist. I have worked on shoots for The Body Shop, Charles Worthington, Miss Guided, While She Sleeps and Roy Rogers. I arranged a trip to Los Angeles where I teamed up with creatives to produce content for Motel Rocks, RIPNDIP, Ragged Priest and Dr Martens. I have styled LA based musicians Tillie and Hey Violet and assisted on a shoot with Skunk Anansie.Locked Pro Plan feature

Six Six 6 is a website I set up to create content for brands whether it be through styling, art direction, writing copy or photography. I organised a trip to LA where I styled or shot content for Ragged Priest, Miss Guided, BAIT, Dr Martens, Paperchase, Dimepiece, Motel Rocks and Jaded London. I worked with influencers/models/creatives to create engaging/original content for these brands. I have also worked with Next, Just Hype, Regal Rose, Quay Australia, RIPNDIP and Cat Footwear. I have built relationships with PR’s and creatives in the UK and ROW to lend products from. Art directing and styling a selection of brands has helped me understand what content different brands want. I will research into their customer demographic along with discussing their goals and where they want to be. After the content is created I organise everything to be distributed back to the brand in the correct format for digital and print. I have written articles for Exposed Magazine, The Drop Date and am currently working on a piece for High Snobiety.
