For those who don’t know you, talk about your background.
Originally from Liverpool, I moved to London when I was just 17 years old for a 6 month stunt, in that time I interned at Alexander McQueen working under some of the fashions greatest names. It was at Alexander McQueen when I learned that styling was what I wanted to pursue. I moved back to London when I was 18 years old to pursue my studies in Fashion Communication and Styling. I have lived and worked in London since, and been fortunate to have built a great coat of contacts and portfolio at the time I have been there.
