21 year old fashion design student, artist and photographer.
I started working in fashion and writing at age 15 through my blog, Rose and Vintage. Founded in November 2012 it became a platform through which I could develop my styling, photography and writing skills, and won me Best Teen Style Blogger at Company Magazine's Style Blogger Awards in 2014. I pursued writing and photography throughout Sixth Form College and my Art Foundation course, having my work published across various online and print magazines, and producing my own zine Bloom which sold internationally. In June 2017, age 19, I became Fashion Assistant at XXY Magazine, where I worked until January 2018, learning the ins-and-outs of producing content and running an independent online and print publication. As of February 2018 I have begun to produce my own monthly printed zine, 5.18 Magazine, in a move to get mine and my peer's work out in the physical world more frequently. It aims to be an accessible zine, covering all topics and not aimed at any specific age or gender. It is published at the end of each month and available through the online shop. As of November 2019 I also am a contributing writer for Sunstroke Magazine.
