Set Design Assistant
Vogue Polska - Freelance
In preparation for the editorial photoshoot, I assisted the set designer by running errands and building, locating and buying props using the mood board given by the photographer as a reference point, using my own knowledge of art history to support their specific vision. On the day of the shoot I helped decorate the set.
The Phantom Warrior - Freelance
My favourite part of the experience was assisting the art director and helping to transport and build the set. Other roles included organising and serving meals, snacks, tea and coffee to cast and crew and checking and signing off deliveries and orders. I ensured backstage areas remained tidy and presentable at all times.
Roksanda - Freelance
I supported the graphic designer in creating an experimental and sculptural window display for the store in central London, which was featured on the brands Instagram page. I also worked as an image retoucher and helped video and photograph projections of the fashion film during London Fashion Week.
Victoria and Albert Museum
April 2017 - August 2020
During my time at the V&A I gained a wealth of knowledge on Art and Design history. I also developed many skills to assist with the unprecedented growth in visitor numbers that the museum had ever seen. Positioned at the main desk I sold hundreds of tickets within the rush of the first hour of the museum opening, whilst promoting memberships and encouraging donations with gift aid wherever possible. For my outstanding visitor interactions and sales scores, I was awarded ‘exceeding expectations’ in all my mid-year reviews. I loved working on special events such as Fashion in Motion and Friday Lates projects, always signing up for overtime when these were on.
London Short Series Film Festival
Role involved organising food for staff Members and looked after VIPs. I ran errands around central London and managed the box office and cloakroom.
Packington Gallery, London
I was a responsible key holder for opening the space, setting up and welcoming local people.
