With over 30 years of creative experience across luxury, high fashion and the high street sector, I bring an understanding of how to deliver brands across every touch-point within the retail environment – in store, windows, press shows, launch parties, showrooms and photographic shoots.
I believe that visual merchandising can achieve commercial success, by inspiring customers through innovative, creative and unique brand experiences. Using skills in creative conceptualisation, project management and both old school crafting and hi-tech execution, I deliver unique and motivating retail environments.
I have worked for and with a wide range of luxury brands including Selfridges, Burberry, Mulberry, Jo Malone, Liberty, Daks, Ralph Lauren , Jaeger; and on the high street, Oasis, Topshop, Jigsaw and M & S.
I am also an experienced Associate VM lecturer and a Fellow of the British Display Society.
