‘I am passionate about History of Fashion and am excited to be part of the tutoring team here at LCS. Having obtained my PhD in History of Design from the Royal College of Art and Victoria and Albert Museum London, I love to inspire emerging fashion talents with historical fashion references. I bring an international perspective to my training having lived and trained in London, Milan and Paris. In my classes we’ll explore the relevance of historic fashion in conceptualising new trends and fashion shoots and how by looking back in time we can inspire new innovative concepts!’
