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. In my role as a Social Media Specialist at The Fashion Digital, I managed multiple brands’ social media channels and worked across asset creation, content calendar curation, product and brand copywriting, reporting, and influencer projects, as well as contributing collaboratively to the overarching strategies.
