Highly adaptable and responsible, with a broad range of experience in the fashion industry. I have the ability to cope well working under pressure and using my own initiative. Being an outgoing and flexible individual I am enthusiastic about the projects I’m involved in and immerse myself in them fully. I have developed skills in managing budgets, organisation and optimising time effectively, liaising with many different teams and supply chains in an appropriate manner and putting together coherent teams. Outside of work I enjoy exercising regularly, particularly swimming. Socialising is an important part of my personal life as I enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their experiences. I also spend a portion of my free time organising events and activities from small scale parties, fundraisers to larger celebrations.
