I am a 2019 graduate of Fashion, Textile art, and Design from the Belfast School of Art, specializing in Knitwear and experimental/deconstructed tailoring. I operate and create with the environment in mind and try to create in a circular fashion. I also act as a freelance creative and act as a networking specialist, with my skills branching from social media management and marketing to events management, to club nights, casting, photography, writing, and styling. My styling career is the most prolific of the listed above, having worked under stylists like Phoebe Lettice, Avigail Collins, and Zoe Costeloe, and smaller more grassroots projects for ASOS marketplace, DEPOP and so forth. My passions include speaking about mental health issues, body positivity, and sustainability and ethical practice in Fashion. All of which I address through my Instagram that has gathered a strong and loyal following. Recent projects include Filming a Kyra Tv x Rimmel London video for Youtube's Nayva Girls, to address online beauty bullying, and writing about Instagram pressures for Adwoah Aboah's website and platform, "Gurls talk". I am incredibly driven, with my finger firmly upon the pulse of urban youth culture, making me a valuable asset to any team. I work exceptionally well alone as well as with a team, through strong communication skills, attention to detail, and emotional intelligence.
