BSc. Fashion Buying and Merchandising with Industrial Experience  



My time at Manchester and my industrial placement has prepared me for the dynamic world of fashion and I am looking forward to pursuing a career in fashion buying. My final year at university has allowed me to develop my understanding of environmental and social issues facing the fashion industry and my ambition going forward in my career is to create a positive environmental impact within the fashion industry. This is reflected in my most recent work ‘&Other Stories - Nightwear Strategic Portfolio’ and ‘Rip3le - Personal Portfolio’ where I discuss the increased time spent at home and brands are able to meet the changes in demand. I also had the opportunity to design our logo and branding for our Business Project - Rip3le - inspired by the need for a more circular economy and the ethos of our brand.
