CV

Professional Summary

I have a passion for all things words. Combining my love for fashion, politics and people to create meaningful cultural content. Graduating with a first with a BA (Hons) in Fashion Communication from Condé Nast College this September, I have developed a multi-disciplinary skill set with a specialism in journalism. 

During this time, I have taken the opportunity to become a part of the CNC editorial team as student features writer. This has seen me write broadly across lifestyle, fashion and the arts. Writing pieces from ‘anti-globalisation and the rise of cocooning’, ‘how internet became a utility and not a luxury’ to fashion catwalk and gallery reviews. Since graduating in November 2020, I freelance write for digital publications and blogs and I am seeking editorial experience, to pursue my dream of becoming a Features Editor.
