About me

I’m a young creative based in east London. I am in the process of graduating as a certified visual merchandiser. With a past of studying fashion design. I freelance as a junior stylist/assistant stylist. I aspire to create powerful editorial imagery in shoots. The experience i have in retail and visual merchandising makes me open to employment as a visual merchandiser or personal shopper/stylist role. I am looking for more work in the industry and creatives to collaborate with.

      Work history

      Sales assistant

      GAP

      Feb 2018 - Jun 2019
      • London, United Kingdom
      • Full Time
      • Through working as a sales assistant for Gap I gained a lot of product knowledge of clothe sizing and baby clothes. Without holding the title of the store visual merchandiser I was still very interested in this side of retail. This included: reading VM briefs and assisting with the styling on mannequins and window dressing following the guidelines. I also went on to assist the nearby store with their displays.
