CREATIVE DIRECTION CONSUTANT EXPERIENCE
I took an introduction to Design at the prestigious Central St Martins College of Art. I then proceeded to graduate with a BA from the London College of Fashion which are part of the University of Arts London (UAL).
My career, in the world of fashion, began at John Richmond where I worked on the Women’s collection. At Boomerang Media I was a freelancer producing artwork which was published as posters and postcards. For El Corte Ingles I was a trend and product researcher in the UK.
I moved to Barcelona to take a position at Mango where I worked for 9 years as a Design/Coordination Manager. My role was to research concepts and provide creative input for all the fashion lines. (Mens/Womens/Casual/Limited Edition Collections).
I relocated to Amsterdam to work at We Fashion which is a high street fashion brand as a Creative Trend Manager. I created seasonal trend directions for the women’s collections right through to how the garments were merchandised in-store.
