About me

A bubbly, energetic, social media savvy, fashion-loving content creator and visual merchandiser. I have loved all things fashion and beauty related my entire life, I haven’t known anything else better and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Over the years, I have expanded my knowledge in fashion by studying Art Fashion at A-Level and Visual Merchandising at degree level. I’ve worked with high and low end brands, in fashion styling for events and artists and lastly, fashion designing and content creating. Trying new things is something that I love to do, because it encourages me to not only grow as a person, but to get out of my comfort zone too. In the area of fashion, I have been able to explore new brands, styles, and trends; which has given me an even better eye for all things fashion. At work, I am a Visual Merchandiser and Personal Shopper. I create store layouts on a monthly basis with the rest of the London V.M team, as well as adjusting the store weekly according to the store’s sales. Outside of work, I am a content creator and fashion stylist - I love creating things. On my social media platforms, I create visual content daily on my growing Instagram & Twitter page; I also film, edit and post ‘How to style’ and ‘Create with Me’ videos to keep my audience engaged beyond photo’s.
