I am a senior lecturer and Course Director for BA (Hons) Fashion Communication. My expertise is in interior design and visual communication, the relationship between commercial spaces and target audiences: how to use retail design, display design and visual merchandising, set design and styling so as to effectively target market segments and enhance a brand and its identity. Other areas of my expertise are media and photography, visual communication and visual persuasion.
Since 2009, I have been teaching both on undergraduate and postgraduate level, combining teaching with research and practicing design. I love combining theory with practice. I design and deliver practical creative workshops such as model making, props making, hand drawing, set design, material exploration and experimentation.
I have successfully mentored students in order to participate in the National Window Design competition with Phaidon Press & Foyles bookshops and had the pleasure of seeing my students winning prizes and installing their installation in Foyles bookshop in Charring Cross Street.
I undertake research projects and participate in conferences leading to publications and have received the award for Best Research conference paper in the 2nd International Colloquium on Design, Branding and Marketing. My current research interests include retail design, visual merchandising, fashion branding, print and social media, photography and visual communication.
Under the Erasmus Scheme I have taught in KHIO (in Oslo), KEA (in Copenhagen), LCI – FD Moda (in Barcelona) and NABA (in Milan) working with international students and meeting fellow academics and experts in Retail Design and Fashion. I have also participated on international fashion jury panels (e.g. in LCI – FD Moda on Fashion Degree final show) and discussion panels on retail design with new cultural and social focus (e.g. London Festival of Architecture 2021).
