I manage the Topshop concession account, liaising with the concession team, overseeing the day to day running of the stores and buying the collections for Motel and Motel Vintage in store and online.
Vintage clothing is a big passion of mine having started out with my own shop and so it's great that Motel has its own remade vintage line. We have a concession in Topshop Oxford Circus and I work with our design team on new ideas, reacting to sales figures and feeding back emerging trends.
I love the ethos of Motel Vintage, creating something new out of a piece of fashion history by giving a garment a new lease of life but still maintaining a completely one of a kind item.
I got started in fashion with my own vintage shop when I was 18 and worked my way up from there.
I love labels such as Moschino and Versace, if I could work with anyone in fashion I would love to raid their vintage archives and get creative!
If you want to work in fashion, try and get as much work experience as you possibly can and get your head down - hard work really does pays off.
