About me
I'm an architecture graduate from Newcastle university, who is working in the fashion industry for a company called Wear the Walk! A brief history - I returned to Newcastle University after graduating with a 2.1 as a tutor for a short project educating the architecture students on the use of materiality in design. This is something I am passionate about and have focused my research on. I went on to start my position at trinity mirror in late October 2017 and I worked in there sales department for 8 months. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn some key skills in communication, pitching to clients and learning how to liaise in B2B sales. In the end although a great position it didn't have the creativity I was after which is when I moved to Wear The Walk. Head of designer relations means that I work closely with a selection of designers we stock and scout new talent for our customer base. As a company we are working to reduce the quickly growing behaviour of 'fast fashion' we offer a rental service that gives you the opportunity to enjoy great fashion without the cost or waste factor. If you are an emerging designer or if you would like to hear more about our subscription packages please do feel free to reach out to me.
