About me

I am a versatile designer with the ability to adapt to set-briefs. I enjoy maintaining good relationships with clients and consistently aim to exceed overall expectation. I have an extent background in many areas of Fashion communication. I was part of the Senior-Sales team for Selfridges (Designer, Menswear) & at Dover Street Market, London & have also worked alongside Harvey Nichols for a featured Campaign during LCM (London Collections Menswear). I have also gone to develop digital Look-books and visual assets for Brands that have showcased at London Fashion Week and at The Saatchi Gallery. My skill-set in Adobe C.S applications has made me self-sufficient in Image-building, layout presentation & Design Implementation within Development Cycle. I consider myself to have strong communication skills and to have a good awareness in Trend-Forecasting.
