Sophie Hannah Richardson is the Creative Assistant for footwear brand ‘Flossy Style’. As well as having a full time job, she freelances in her spare time as a Fashion Stylist and Blogger. She graduated from Southampton Solent University with a First Class Honors in BA (Hons) Fashion with Photography and has key skills in using Adobe Photoshop and InDesign; these can be seen through her work.
She has undertaken internships with well know Fashion Stylists and the established fashion magazine ‘Elle’. Throughout these roles she has excelled in multi-tasking, organizational skills, professionalism and styling. Various responsibilities included contacting PR companies to pull clothing and accessories for shoots, booking and attending appointments, creating mood boards, prepping for shoots, steaming garments, paperwork and assisting styling. The internships combined with those specific responsibilities enabled her to gain confidence and knowledge into how styling works within the fashion industry and thus inspired her to start freelancing as she wanted to experience styling first hand and expand her portfolio, contacts and styling skills. She has since been collaborating on test shoots within studios and on location and has achieved some creative, bold images from shoots; some of which have been published digitally and within print.
She personally feels styling and being creative are her strongest skills; she has had a huge passion and interest in it since graduating from university and feels she has gained some valuable experiences which make her a strong, independent candidate to work within a fashion company. She is confident, reliable, has great time management, highly motivated and works very hard. She has a strong awareness of fashion designers, brands and trends, luxury and high street, especially being familiar with these from pulling clothing and accessories for styling shoots.
Sophie’s dream is to pursue a career as a Fashion Stylist.
