About me

 

I bridge the creative and analytical worlds: My degree from Central Saint Martins and experience in leading fashion design houses has formed my creative drive and aesthetic sensibilities. Yet I also understand the facts and numbers and the mind of the consumer that underpin business success. Having worked in companies both large and small in France, Italy and the UK, from Lanvin to niche design studios, I gained valuable expertise in sourcing, supply-chain management, competitive intelligence, trend research and the importance of costs and margins. Having focussed on the fashion industry so far, I am now looking for an opportunity to apply my skills more widely at the intersection between the creative industries, branding and consumer trends.
