About me
I am a luxury fashion and lifestyle journalist who has been in the industry for over six years. Through the span of my career I have worked in the UK, Middle East and Netherlands, which has allowed me to build up an expansive knowledge of an international fashion and lifestyle industries. As you can see from my work experience I have worked for reputable print and digital publications in editorial roles, writing on both current fashion and lifestyle topics. As a result of working in this industry I have a strong understanding and thrive with the pressures involved in working within a fast paced environment with multiple deadlines and tasks. To keep up to date with latest trends and news I founded my own digital fashion magazine (www.fashioneleutheromania.co.uk) for which I write runway reviews, fashion, travel and lifestyle features, We have covered London Fashion Week since 2016 and Dubai Fashion Week in 2017. I create original content for social media platforms – specifically Instagram and manage freelance writers. In previous roles I developed a range of skills like researching, reporting, editing, branding strategy and development, social media strategy, SEO, creative strategy along with working on Creative Suites Packages (InDesign, Photoshop, FinalCut Pro). I understand in this industry, the importance of working together in a team to share knowledge to succeed in goals. With this considered I have developed excellent communication skills on all platforms and levels.I am highly adaptable, able to manage multiple demands and understand this is necessary in order to succeed as a journalist / writer. Within my previous work history I’ve built a broad knowledge of hospitality and food & drink. Specifically I represented Gaucho as a receptionist where I gained an extensive experience of working in a fine dining and luxury hospitality environment. I have a keen interest in travel and love to learn about other communities and cultures. I am now looking to take my career in to a position that allows me to represent big names and continue to learn and develop my skills.
