About me
I'm an accomplished fashion stylist and content producer with a strong working knowledge of in-house and freelance production across digital, print and social platforms. Most recently I worked for a well-known high street fashion brand where I styled and produced brand content and campaigns. Additionally, I also took a lead role in managing social media imagery and video content. This included producing Instagram lives with celebrity ambassadors, creating engaging Instagram stories, producing styling videos, editorial and still-life fashion imagery. Previously, I've worked across household magazines, where I’ve contributed on main fashion, catalogue imagery, digital features and shopping pages. I also have experience with high-end titles; assisting with red carpet styling and luxury fashion pages containing designer product. I'm currently available for editorial, commercial and ecommerce styling, as well as shoot production and desk cover.
