I studied Fashion Communication and Promotion at Central Saint Martins and hold a Masters degree in International Law. I taught at a number of art schools in the UK and internationally before joining CSM as Fashion Communication Promotion Pathway Leader in 2017.

I have been working across a variety of fields from fashion film making, art and creative direction, to brand management and journalism. For a number of years, I worked as an editor of Acne Paper magazine and contributed to high profile fashion and life style publications.

I am the founder and Creative Director of visual research company and consultancy - Atelier Research, the only company which provides expert visual research services for fashion and design. My client list includes museums such as Metropolitan Museum of Art NY and Musée des arts Décoratifs Paris; fashion and beauty brands such as Golden Goose Deluxe Brand, Armani, Alexander McQueen, Chanel Beauty, CK, Stella McCartney, H&M and others; but also photographers, art directors, film makers, fashion designers, production companies, and department stores across the globe.

I have been a speaker at international conferences and visiting lecturer in universities worldwide, teaching fashion communication, visual research and visual literacy.
