About me
I have a bold innovative style that uses attention to detail as the defining statement. I thrive in a fast-paced environment using my industry and runway experience to focus on applying my creativity. A major professional strength is extensive fashion and directing in photographic studios, which has resulted in numerous internationally recognised and published works. Comprehensive knowledge and management experience directly related to the constantly changing fashion trends. In early 2018 I have launched my own fashion brand. I have switched/narrowed designs into leather/PVC and rubber and started to create custom designs for many events and occasions under brand name ANGELIC. ANGELIC is a post fetish brand working with leather, pvc and rubber based in London. Bringing a new vision how fetish garments and accessories can be perceived. Creating exceptional designs for everyday, provocative stage and extreme iconic looks.
