UNIQUELY YOU TOGETHER HARRODS

The perfect fit

My love for Fashion Fitting started at the age of six when my mum taught me how to use a sewing machine. Initially, it was a hobby, I used to make cute little dresses for my Barbie dolls. I became so in love with it and practised all the time. I even customised my own clothes with little pattern cutting knowledge. I would jazz things up, spray paint tops, add pretty bows and ribbons. Looking back at the pictures I do think to myself, what was I thinking, but I really enjoyed myself. At one point I found myself making little rag dolls. It’s funny because I made my first one for my mum because she was cross with me.

At university I studied Fashion Design and Marketing, specialising in textile surface design course which lead me to the path of Fashion Fitting. I’ve been at Harrods for over two years, and have recently started a brand-new exciting role as Personalisation Designer working in our Signature Gift Shop. We offer a range of services from embroidery to hot stamping and are currently known to be the only department store in the world to offer Swarovski Crystal personalisation. It’s been an amazing opportunity for me as I’ve been able to specialise in an area of design that I consider the most exciting and intricate.
 
I remember when I used to visit Harrods during Christmas time to take a look at the store window displays. My mum always used to say “wouldn’t it be great if you worked here when you’re older." I can’t believe I'm actually working at Harrods. I’m so happy to be here.
