I’m a 22 year old Londoner making my way in the wonderful world of fashion. Since leaving school in 2009 I have interned at Baron Baronne in Paris and Alexander McQueen in London, assisted on shoots for Harpers Bazaar Arabia and Sketchbook Magazine, helped organise events for Diane Von Furstenberg and Erdem, written for a variety of print and digital publications and worked as Online Fashion Editor for Velour Magazine. Nowadays I divide my time between blogging, modelling with Select Model Management, presenting for Clothes Show TV and studying Fashion History and Theory at Central Saint Martins.
I launched La Petite Anglaise in May 2010 to write about my adventures interning in the French fashion capital. I wanted to share my first foray into the industry with anyone who was remotely interested and hoped that blogging about my Parisian antics would leave me with a slightly more substantial record of my time there than just an empty bank account and a nasty smokers cough. Despite my previous belief that the internet was only used for facebook and online shopping, I came home from Paris with an addiction to blogging that was rivalled only by my addiction to Gauloises. Since then I have covered Fashion Week in London, New York and Milan and travelled everywhere from Florence to Qatar documenting my every sartorial step on La Petite Anglaise.
La Petite Anglaise is both a diary of my personal fashion journey and a platform to write about anything and everything that inspires me. It features what I’m wearing and where I’m wearing it, which collections I’m loving and my personal picks from both high street and designer brands. From parties and press days to exclusive interviews and international fashion week coverage, La Petite Anglaise is a sartorial smörgåsbord which aims to share my wardrobe, current fashion obsessions and experiences in the industry.
La Petite Anglaise is recommended by the prestigious Vogue.com ”blog hub” and the BritishFashionCouncil.com ”blog portal”. This year I was one of 5 shortlisted for “Fashion Blogger of the Year” in the Fashion Monitor 2013 Journalism Awards. For the past six seasons, I have attended covered all major shows during London Fashion Week as UK accredited press and New York Fashion Week for the past three.

La Petite Anglaise has been featured in many other publications including nymag.com, Vogue.co.uk, Elle.com, HarpersBazaar.com, Vogue.fr, Vogue.jp and more. It has also been featured in Grazia Magazine numerous times, The Evening Standard, Company Magazine, Teen Vogue, InStyle Magazine and Glamour Magazine among others. More recently I was featured by The Daily Telegraph online as their “girl of the week”, the British Vogue June 2013 ”Miss Vogue” supplement, Grazia Italy and Grazia Spain (print and online). More details on press coverage can be seen here.
I frequently work with brands on a variety of projects ranging from event hosting to editorial shoots, guest editing, styling and brand ambassadorship. Recent collaborations include Louis Vuitton, Banana Republic, Harrods, L.K.Bennett, Monica Vinader, Whistles, Matches, Jaeger London and Selfridges.

La Petite Anglaise contains some affiliate marketing links, which means I get paid commission on sales of those products or services I write about. I use a 3rd Party to enable these affiliate partnerships.
LPA is very much personal blog and reflection of my personal taste so editorial content is NOT influenced by advertisers or affiliate partnerships. If I don’t genuinely like it, I don’t write about it.
