Work experience
Boden*
July 2014 - July 2014 
I worked within a variety of departments at Boden. I assisted the art director, seniors designers, photographers and bloggers with the launch of their spring collection. My duties included: research, producing mood boards, blogging, styling and set design. I also sat in on model hirings, so I could 
begin to understand the whole process. 
Zandra Rhodes*
October 2015 - October 2015 
I worked directly with the design team on various projects including designing and making the decorations for an amazing art Christmas tree for a stately home. I also was involved in screen printing onto silk using patterns developed from Zandra’s sketchbooks. Here I was taught the process of screen printing and mixing colours. I learnt how drawings can be translated into designs for garments. 
Observer Fashion Magazine* 
May 2017 — May 2107 
I worked alongside the Fashion Editor. My duties were to source new fashion trends, source suppliers, liaise with suppliers, arrange clothes and accessories for photo shoots and write copy for the magazine spreads. During this I learnt a lot about the stress of working to a strict deadline and the full process of putting the magazine together. 
The Duke Pub & Dining Rooms*
July 2018 - September 2018
My latest job was during my summer holidays. I was employed as both waitress and bartender. 
My duties included setting tables, taking food orders, serving, bar-tending and dealing with money.
