About me

I am a Fashion Designer, London College of Fashion alumnus and currently work as Creative Director for an emerging fashion house in Tokyo - I am seeking a womenswear design opportunity and have a negotiable notice period. I am inspired, confident, focused, disciplined and reliable, with a natural flair for design, a strong sense of identity and aesthetics, excellent technical abilities, and an up-to-date understanding of contemporary fashion - both the high-end and the high-street. I possess a multi-faceted skill-set, an extensive awareness of production, promotion and business, and am involved in the total process of design - from creation to consumption. I would especially value an opportunity to use and hone my skills, holistically expand my understanding of the fashion business and to grow, both professionally and personally.
