What made you get into fashion?
I have always been creative and used to make clothes and accessories when I was younger. During school I was pushed towards art school but I knew that wasn’t quite right so going to the borders school if textiles and designs just seemed to fit. Once in university I sort of just go caught up in it.
Who is your inspiration?
I find people in general so interesting, I’m a big fan of people watching ( not in a stalker way)
Describe what fashion is to you in 5 words?
Headache, heart break and love
Did you do any internshios? and with whom?
I wanted to try my hand at as much as possible before I graduated. I worked with several magazines, Disorder, Let Them Eat Cake and 7th Man. I also did some trend forecasting, PR, buying and worked as a stylists assistant.
How did you get a job at 1883 magazine?
I kept in contact with a couple of people I had worked with on previous magazine and once I graduated I got asked to join the team.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
To the day? Hopefully lying on a sun soaked beach sipping on a cocktail without a care in the world! But I would settle for still working with the 1883 team, jetting around on photoshoots seeing the world. I dont ask for much!
What advice do you have for those who are getting into fashion?
Be prepared to work your bum off and understand that it isn’t the glamorous world that it is made out to be, but it can be a hell of a lot of fun!
