| Creative Extraordinaire | My name is Love and I currently work in Monsoon Accessorize as the PR Coordinator. I specialize in online partnerships; media, bloggers and magazines. I help organize events for various launches, reach out to contacts to ensure product placement and look after our wonderful interns. During my time in the business I have created engaging visual and written content such as photography and DIY projects that have been featured on Accessorize Newsletters, the Accessorize Blog, Facebook Page, Instagram and Twitter. Prior to that I worked on the Buying department of the company and fully understand a product's life cycle. I have also appeared on the brand's Packaging, In Store Graphics and a "How to Wear Scarves"? video as a model. When I'm not running around the Accessorize HO, I spend my free time looking after my two businesses VIDEO and Little Darling* Handmade and also my own blog: www.thegirlnamedlove.com which was shortlisted in the Best for Fashion category at the 2015 Cosmopolitan Awards. It is something that gives me the opportunity to express myself and something that I enjoy immensely. It documents my daily outfits as well as life in London and my knitwear & jewellery line's journey -from initial idea to finished product sold on Etsy. Building online brand identities through digital and social media is something that I'm very passionate about. The online world is limitless, it allows you to move in any direction you choose. It takes down the barriers; nothing is local, everything is global and I love the freedom that comes with that. The online world has redefined the way brands connect with like minded individuals and potential customers and that's what I want to do as I live and breathe online!
