I’m a marketing communications expert, with almost 12 years experience at leading UK universities (Manchester and Liverpool), and consulting for some of the UK’s iconic fashion retail brands, such as Selfridges and House of Fraser and TopShop. I enjoyed 3 years at Sanctuary Music as Head of Global Fashion & Licensing, where I led a team of creatives and brand managers to develop and create fashion music merchandise for bands/artists ranging from the Stone Roses to Girls Aloud. Equally I have worked extensively in a marketing agency environment, and managed client advertising accounts from food and drink to sport and wellbeing sectors. Areas of teaching expertise are: International Marketing; Strategic Marketing; Fashion and Retail Marketing; Fashion Advertising; Media & Campaign Planning; Consumer Behaviour & Profiling; PR and Entrepreneurial Marketing. I’m a graduate from Manchester University Business School, (2004) with a PhD, in consumer behaviour in fashion /streetwear.

Externally, I’ve delivered and presented research at conferences, (British Academy of Management) and my research interest areas are namely (but not limited to) consumer decision processes; fashion mobile apps; fashion ethics & theory; sustainable British fashion; heritage fashion branding; fashion advertising in global markets and fashion branding values...
