Wardrobe & Prop Stylist

How did you get into the industry?

I met people in this industry when I was studying abroad in Greece, who provided my introduction to the photography/advertising community. After graduating college with a degree in International Relations, I moved to London, where I was taken on by Vivienne Westwood, working in her press office on her runway shows and media. I began studying sewing whilst at Westwood and continued after I moved home. In Minneapolis, I have worked on assorted advertising projects as a wardrobe, prop and set stylist.

I find inspiration when I travel and in working with an assortment of people.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Go that way, fast. If something gets in your way, turn.

What book, movie read/seen recently you would recommend and why?

I loved Cunk on Earth, the Afterparty, Sex Education, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Ted Lasso and Lessons in Chemistry, lately. I enjoy humorous stories.

Are you a traveler or a homebody? Why?

I love to travel and meet up with friends/family around the world. My step father was Scottish, but born/raised in Buenos Aires, so I grew up with family/friends around the world and the travel bug hit early. I love discovering amazing restaurants & shops and experiencing different ways of doing things. My kids did French immersion school and have grown up exploring the world, as well.
