Tamara is a UCL graduate and has almost 20 years experience working in the fashion industry, as a fashion editor and brand consultant, both in London and globally for publications, VIP clients, as well as with UK and international High Street and well renowned designer brands on advertising campaigns, fashion shows and brand design.
Her work has spanned the entire remit of the fashion industry, from music styling where she designed tour, album visuals, red carpet and video images for leading recording artists, to London, NYC and Paris fashion shows where she styled for leading designer labels, as well as exciting start up brands. Tamara's experience in the fashion industry has seen the changes in the market, from print media using polaroid and film for photography, through to digital influencer led content and multiplatform retail.
Uniquely, Tamara has also worked in Westminster as a Parliamentary Researcher for Sharon Hodgson MP, who was her mentor on the prestigious Fabian Women's Network Mentoring Scheme, which trains women from diverse backgrounds into frontline politics.
Tamara worked for Sharon primarily on the Art, Craft and Design in Education All Party Parliamentary Group, organising events both for roundtable discussion with arts educationalists and key sector stakeholders. She also arranged the Drawn Together event at Westminster with a larger audience of arts groups, businesses, VIPs, Parliamentarians, media and creative industry leaders.
While in Westminster, Tamara organised a series of roundtables for the fashion industry to meet with Parliamentarians, to discuss their key business, creative and consumer concerns around Brexit and future sector growth. There is clearly a real need for this intersectional dialogue between brands, businesses, creatives, consumers and parliamentarians to continue and grow. This has led to the organisation of Fashion Roundtable, to support awareness and promote discussion to generate best business growth for the fashion industry.
