About me
I was five. I could still taste the saccharine sweet remnants of chocolate on my tongue. My mouth was smeared with cocoa crumbs and icing. My parents walked in, mouths wide open. “Laura! Did you take a bite of grandma’s birthday cake?” “No.” And so the storytelling began… ____________ With a degree in journalism from the London College of Fashion, I've trained in crafting copy for fashion, lifestyle, art, travel and culture. I've written for a number of publications from the Wall Street Journal, Stylist and the Metro to indie mags such as DOG, Perdiz, Popshot and Caboodle. I currently work in curations at Pinterest, identifying trends and curating visual round-ups to feature on the Pinterest Today tab. I'm also a freelance copywriter, providing copy for clients from the BBC, National Rail and Trivago to Zalando and Debenhams.

  • Interview with Dries Van Noten
    Interview with Dries Van NotenEarlier this year I had the pleasure of spending some time with true fashion royalty, Dries Van Noten. . As I tottered around Dries’ country estate in Antwerp, in a pair of those strappy sandals we all wore to death in the spring, my heels got stuck in the cobbles, I made holes in the lawn and I regretted saying "no" to borrowing a pair of wellies. But all was alright in the end, when Dries' partner Patrick kindly assured me “you were meeting a fashion designer, what else were you going to do?!”

  • Zalando fashion writing
    Zalando fashion writingAs a fashion writer for the online retail giant that is Zalando, I regularly completed briefs that drew on an extensive fashion knowledge that started to build as soon as I found the keys to the dressing up box as a child… Over seven years of freelancing for Zalando I covered everything from META descriptions and Valentine's buying guides, London shopping guides and seasonal trend roundups, to product launch copy for brands such as Adidas NMD and Viktor&Rolf X Zalando.
