A curator and writer, she works across the fields of contemporary art and fashion and has produced projects and programmed events for Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, V&A Museum, ICA, Arcade East, the Barbican, Tate Britain, Tenderbooks, Kunstverein München, Dutch Design Week, the Fashion Space Gallery and a range of temporary spaces. Her curatorial practice has been recognised through several grants from Arts Council England and the British Council.

Caroline is co-founder of Modus, a curatorial platform and network for expanded fashion practice. Modus produces exhibitions, events and publications bringing together an international community of fashion practitioners and cultural institutions to promote dialogue and new collaborations between fashion practice and theory. She is a member of the UAL Research Centre for Fashion Curation and the Transnational Fashion Hub at LCF, and editor of Fashion Practice: The Journal for Design, Creative Process and the Fashion Industry.

Caroline publishes scholarly and critical writing on fashion, contemporary art and curatorial practice and curates exhibitions and projects internationally. Her current research uses the concept of the curatorial as a means to assemble critical platforms and ideas in the field of fashion, forming new alliances, affinities and communities of interdisciplinary practice at local and global levels. She is developing an exhibition that will open at London's East Bank in Spring 2025.

A frequent media commentator, Caroline's knowlege and opinion on historical and contemporary fashion has appeared across the global media, including BBC World Service, BBC Culture, Vogue, The Guardian, The Times Style Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, WWD and the Financial Times.
