After graduating from the University of Brighton in Fashion Design and Business, I joined the Design, Technical, Production and Wholesale team of FP in 2015. This was a great six months on the team and I gained a lot of client exposure very quickly, especially working with a mix of suppliers, brands, start-ups and retailers.
Later that year, there was an opportunity to join the fast-paced Temps team — which I jumped at! It was an amazing opportunity to start my own relationships with clients and the designers I had always admired, and also to create long lasting relationships with my freelancers. I love working closely with businesses on their immediate needs and delivering fantastic candidates at short notice.
I now have an established temps and freelance desk working closely with the designers for Fashion Week with their technical and production temps; start up brands with hiring freelance designers and supporting retailers with buying, merchandising and other fashion head office needs.
I love to stay in tune with new brands and trends, Instagram, exhibitions and new places to eat in South East London.
