About me

I am a dynamic and driven fashion communicator who enjoys the entire creative process, from the initial concept and realisation to the development and final delivery. I have an enthusiasm for fashion PR, marketing and events. I have been able to develop and refine a vast array of skills through my time working at M&C Saatchi, supported by my studies. I am an extremely organised and hard-working individual that works well both independently and within a team. My education along with my working experience has given me a broad and adaptable skill set along with strong and professional communication skills. During my time studying Fashion Communication at Northumbria University I have been able to develop a diverse portfolio of work. With a keen eye for creating alluring visual and written content, my creative portfolio displays an extensive range of work including PR campaigns, fashion films, editorials, and event planning ; featuring live briefs with real-world application. With hobbies including traveling, festival going and capturing moments though imagery and writing, I especially like to create thought provoking visuals and content that take inspiration from cultural, artistic, musical and fashion influences. I think that the merging of the industries is a really exciting and important area to explore within fashion because the experiential aspect has been lifted through social media and technology.
