About me
I am an enthusiastic Photographer, Client Advisor, Stylist, Visual Merchandiser and Content Creator with 3 years of experience in the high fashion and luxury fashion industry in Central London; and 5 years of experience as a freelance photographer and content editor. I have recently graduated from University of the Arts London with a Second Upper Class Honours (2:1) in Photography. I pride myself in hard work, attention to detail and outstanding organization skills. I have been consistently recognised for my performance excellence and contribution to my Team’s success, which I owe to my strong interpersonal communication skills, team-oriented perspective and an outstanding customer service delivery. As a result of my professionalism, maturity and merchandising experience of three years, I hold a proven record of exceeding sales targets even by 20% and maintaining top customer experience satisfaction. Three years of fashion industry experience and my professional artistic background in photography, allowed me to master my visual merchandising and marketing skills over time, thereby influencing my constantly growing interest towards fashion marketing sector – my future career field.
