About me
I am a passionate and hard-working individual with a history of working in a number of reputable fashion organisations. I have a strong worth ethic and pride myself on my professional but personable approach. I thrive when working in a customer-facing role and as part of a busy studio team, in environments that allow me to demonstrate my initiative and enthusiasm. I have a keen eye for detail and actively contribute creative ideas, seeking feedback when suitable and looking for opportunities to develop. I am a confident and experienced styling assistant and would be an asset to any team. I also co-host Mate podcast, a fashion, lifestyle and culture show which hosts live events across the U.K, connecting like-minded women in start-up businesses. Online I have built a cohesive visual identity through my Fashion, Travel and Lifestyle website which is consistent in producing engaging and personalised content connecting both current and future audiences. I have content creation partnerships with major brands and companies such as TOPSHOP, MANSUR GAVRIEL, VERSE and Zyper.

    It was my responsibility to ensure the seamless running of our studio. I worked closely with the Creative Director and Lead Stylist to ensure the necessary preparation had taken place prior to shooting. Often working across three studios, I was responsible for overseeing the model changes, the handover of correct garment codes and the setting of the studio in between shoots. I proactively worked to improve our productivity in the studio, whilst ensuring every element of the shoot received the appropriate levels of care and attention. I contributed creative ideas, proactively researched key briefs and ensured each product was styled with commercial awareness.
