Working alongside the team I used my knowledge of colour arrangement and composition to design creative displays, working on window and in-store displays and gift tables. Part of my role was visiting other stores to repeat the displays ensuring every shop was up to date. This taught me the importance of creatively adapting, as available stock would often vary depending on the store. Other day to day duties included general upkeep of all 19 showrooms at the flagship store, stock management, DIY, painting and decorating, dealing with high end clients and bespoke products. I assisted the design team with the opening of a new store in Manchester, where I was trusted to manage and brief staff who newly joined us on the project.

My extensive knowledge of fabrics and yarns was essential in this role.
