Events & PR Assistant

Oxford Fashion Studio

Jan 2016
  • I was put in charge of securing sponsorship for runway shows in New York, London, Paris and Oxford Fashion Week. I successfully secured large quantities of products from well-known brands including genuine leather handbags by Take Charge. I worked this role from home demonstrating my ability to work independently and manage workload effectively. I also helped in securing products for the VIP hospitality room, promoted shows via social media, negotiated with sponsors and coordinated deliveries between sponsors and venues. I worked both Oxford and London Fashion Week shows, this involved working with the team to set up the runway, prepare goody bags, set up the reception area and check in desk, prepare place cards and seat numbers and socialise with guests as a representative of the company. I was put in charge of the events team while the event coordinator was offsite which I feel demonstrates my ability to take leadership and manage a team. I also attended a number of social events like press releases and launch parties to represent the company which I feel demonstrates I have strong people skills and a professional manner.
