I’m currently studying a MA course in Applied Imagination in the Creative Industries and seeking experience of curation works in museums and also in fashion industry. I have 4 years experience working as a fashion editor for two of the best selling fashion magazines in China before ?I decided to take a break from my career and further my education at Central St Martins. I am highly organised, attention to details, working to meet tight deadlines, professional, self-motivated, keen and eager to challenge myself either in a team or as an individual.
