Fashion Director

I was born in Cheltenham, schooled in Gloucester and at weekends I return home from London to a quiet corner of the Cotswold’s. I graduated from London College of Fashion in Fashion Design Technology: Surface Textiles with Womenswear and completed my Masters in Journalism: News & Current Affairs, from London College of Communication. I started working with CFW in 2011 as Fashion Consultant and last year I was appointed Fashion Director. My new role is to oversee all elements of fashion throughout Cheltenham Fashion Week, from styling our fashion stories in magazines to selecting designers and brands in our fashion shows. It is a wonderful job and I am privileged to play a part in this inspiring project.

Fave Style Icon:  Grace Kelly

Fave Designers:  Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Giorgio Armani and Marchesa.

Favourite High Street Brand:  Zara, Primark and Warehouse

Guilty Pleasure:  Christian Louboutin shoes and Mulberry handbags

Personal style: Not ruled by trends. Love Black and Prints. Prefer dressing for Autumn/Winter than Spring/Summer.

“This year I am most looking forward to Fashion’s Night Out. It’s the highlight event where we showcase the creative talents of new and established designers from all over the country.
