About me
Communications professional, with experience working with fashion brands, magazines, artists and cultural organisations. My research interests include exploring the intersections of politics, culture and identity through fashion, art and the creative industries, with a focus on working-class communities. I am the Co-Founder of Colèchi, a fashion research and co-learning agency reimagining the industry through collaboration and community. Colèchi uses action research to confront broken systems in fashion, art, and design to facilitate a more ethical and inclusive industry. Our work includes consulting brands and organisations, curating content, events and exhibitions and driving innovation through research.
Projects
  • STREET TO HIGHEND
    STREET TO HIGHENDStreet to Highend was two fashion shows directed and produced by myself and two others. We collaberated with young artists and creatives to produce two fashion shows which would act as a platform for emerging designers. The shoes included other art forms such as dance and music which made the shows celebrate London's street culture and spotlight emerging talent.
  • Alchemy Festival
    Alchemy FestivalAlchemy Festival is an annual festival at The Southbank Centre, in 2015 along with 12 other young people I created a fashion installation for the festival. The theme for the show was juxtaposing London's culture with Asian culture and exploring how parts of Asian culture has been appropriated by Londoners.
