About me

I have a creative background in Fashion Design and Styling managing the styling process for campaign and look books for photo and video shoots, in-store visual merchandising and runway shows. I’m thoroughly passionate in merging both worlds into the exhilarating world of events. I have brought forth transferable skills in the last 10 years in fashion, bringing a fresh and creative approach to event management, with a keen eye for the smallest details, my time and organisational skills, my communications and teamwork abilities, my motivation in self-growth and most importantly my passion. Having dealt with exclusive clientele like royalty, celebrities & VIPs as well as working in one of the largest fashion shows in the Middle East, has tremendously enhanced my skillsets and how to work in high-pressured environments bringing people and businesses together and a concept visually to life. Currently looking for an events coordinating/planning/management full time role within London
