About me

I am proactive, naturally good at communication, organized and can think outside the box. Notable experience includes: fashion editorial work, wedding, group/artist, and event and street-style photography. My previous qualifications in Russia often involved assisting photographers and event managers, as well as undertaking important and responsible administrative work on a daily basis in varied environments. This required me to work effectively to deadlines under my own initiative. I also have extensive experience in fashion PR, such as working for London Fashion Week and Lane Crawford's Grand Opening in Shanghai where I helped to create the pieces as well as generate press release photography. Due to my work experience as a photographer and PR assistant I am in touch with bloggers and always up to date with recent trends in SM. I am also a good sales person as my experience at Goldfinch LTD and Diesel show. I also have administrative skills and confident phone manner.At the moment I'm continuing education on MA level where research is essential. I not only able to do it on an advanced level but also enjoy gaining new information.
