Describe yourself in a few key words… 

A young experienced fashion enthusiast who is driven and passionate about what they do.

 

What brought you to become an Image Consultant?

I found a love through image consultancy and styling, as I love the way we can change emotion and feelings through beautiful pieces of clothing and accessories. Making people truly feel their best and most confident self is such an amazing feeling.

 

What do you love most about your job?

I guess the thing I love most about my job is the people. I’m such a people person! Its such a joy to meet so many wonderful people and really help the way they want to look and feel.

 

Who have you worked with that compliments the work you do?

I’m originally from a fashion design background, so I have worked with different brands and factories – from independent London brands to global appreciated brands such as H&M etc. In styling, I have worked independently for all different types of companies for their editorial campaigns and I’m also working with John Lewis & Partners as a stylist.

 

What inspires you? 

I could go on about all the amazing designers, art and architecture I love but mostly it always comes down to how that something makes us feel. I’m very inspired by emotion and feelings as I believe we all have a glisten and inner beauty that’s really special to every individual.  There is beauty in most things, it’s just plucking it out and ultimately I think that is pretty powerful.

 

How would you describe your personal style?

I love lots of different designers, who all have different aesthetics, however I really love the craft element to collections. Brands like Louis Vuitton are inspiring with their use of hand made leather accessories which is something that is close to my own vision – I feel there is a real art to reworking leather and the handmade element to the pieces giving them durability.

 

Tell us 5 things about yourself we don’t know…

  • I lived in china for 3 months designing for a handbag manufacturing company that supplied high street stores globally. A design of mine was bought by a leading high street store and was seen as part of Trinny Woodhalls fashion edit on ITV’s This Morning with Phillip & Holly.

 

  • I designed an accessories collection in collaboration with a London based brand called Marr Ldn that was released for London Fashion Week Mens and was further seen at Paris Fashion Week show rooms. The collection was available to buy in “not just another store” on Shoreditch high street and online.

 

  • I won a competition showcasing a reworked suit which was designed and made by using existing corporate suits to create luxury work look.  This was part of Bristol Fashion Week. Prior to this I featured on BBC Bristol to talk through my idea and my sustainable approach to fashion in 2014.

 

  • I am a fashion design graduate from Manchester School Of Art and I was the first person who studied fashion design to create whole line of  hand-made wearable accessories to show on the catwalk.

 

  • I’m a trained Bra Fitter. I find this crucial in styling as our core basics are really important to the way our overall look is executed.

 

What is your style philosophy?

Fashion has no timeline or limits, release yourself and enjoy the items that make you feel comfortable and content. Everyone deserves to find their sparkle. It’s all about building confidence which is personal to everyone.

 

What plans do you have for the future?

Build an empire?
