I am a stylist whose talent, creativity and eye-for-detail make me an ideal fit for any creative brief. I have worked across Australia in all states and capital cities, as well as having lived and worked in London conducting business throughout Europe. Currently working as a stylist via my own company the urban showroom, I pride myself on creating truly memorable looks and spaces, while always resourceful and mindful of budget.
A background in fashion provided my springboard into interior styling and film styling. I have a clear understanding of what good design is. I possess the stylistic edge, this job requires. This, teamed with my sales, marketing and brand awareness provides me with an ability to conceptualise any brief.
I have styled a variety of events, from large scale productions such as music festivals, to children’s parties and weddings, where a more intimate approach is required. I have also styled for photographers, theatre and filmmaker, and satisfied both residential and commercial interior design briefs. In all cases my understanding of budget, deadline and an emphasis on the client’s satisfaction is considered and applied.
a dynamic, results driven, efficient, professional, always enthusiastic, with proven business, communication and styling skills. dedicated to design, fashion and the arts, i am a creative thinker with a working history in interior and event styling, art direction, props buying, research and installations.
development through the next exciting opportunity and challenge: working in film, television and television TVCs applying my exceptional styling ability, to a variety of environments, while I continue to expand my business knowledge and supplier connections.
the urban showroom began when friends and colleagues asked me to apply my long time creative ability as a stylist and painter to a variety of job briefs from visual merchandising, wardrobe and events.
