Projects
  • TSTM EVERYDAY
    TSTM EVERYDAYFor my Final Major Project, I rebranded Topshop and Topman. Combining the two brands to create a gender blurred campaign that would be suitable for ASOS. Within the project, I created a social media campaign, lookbook and website. I achieved a 1st for my FMP.
  • AGED CATWALK & EXHIBITION
    AGED CATWALK & EXHIBITIONDuring the first lockdown, I was tasked with creating an event inspired by disconnection. I decided to explore the relationship between disconnection and ageing - both human and natural ageing. I designed a catwalk and exhibition, as well as creating a lookbook, Instagram and website.
  • THE THIRD SUMMER OF LOVE
