How old are you?
Can you tell us about your background?
I have an undergraduate degree in Art History and History from McGill University in Montreal. In Montreal I completed a curatorial internship in the Fashion & Textiles Department at the McCord Museum. I also worked as an editor / curator of a visual arts publication and in retail merchandising and buying.
What drew you to fashion?
It is somewhat clichéd but I have always been interested in fashion. I grew up watching Fashion Television with my mother and flipping through magazines, drawing princesses in ball gowns, likely before I could read. I was captivated by the visual richness of glamour. Later, through art historical methods, I was able to analyze the visual culture of fashion from an academic perspective.
Why did you join this MA?
It is truly one of a kind! The professional and academic opportunities in London for this field are unlike those in any other place.
Where do you hope to be in two years from now?
Simply, I hope to be working! This could be in a museum, a publishing house, freelance, a university. I look forward to undertaking a PhD in the future.
