Recent masters graduate looking to work within PR and marketing, with the aim to move towards brand consultancy. The vibrancy and creativity of the art and fashion industries has always excited my interest. However I understand the level of self-possession and nous required to be successful within these industries. I have gained this awareness through an MSc in International Fashion Marketing as well as experience in Retail Marketing as an intern for WGSN and latterly, as a Marketing and PR Assistant for The Other Art Fair.
Worked part time alongside my internship at The Other Art Fair. Currently working full time whilst looking for work or internships.

My Masters dissertation focused on the opportunities that print advertising and social media marketing can bring to luxury fashion brands. I was able to interview industry professionals from the luxury retail environment and the print industry, which deepened my understanding of the fashion industry, in particular, effective marketing and brand communication strategies. This in-depth research and writing strengthened my love for branding and interest in brand communications.
Reading for my BA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, I learnt to write critically and concisely as well as developing my sense of aesthicism. Alongside my studies, I led the Events team in The Courtauld’s biannual East Wing exhibition which required an assiduous approach. Working in a small team to put on ambitious events meant that there was no room for inefficiency. Resilience, tenacity and seamless organisation were all non negotiable.
