Besides Fashion Styling I often design outfits by my self, thanks to my Fashion Design background, offering unique service. And for the past two years I am exhibiting and freelancing as a fashion illustrator as well. I have exhibited my works in Shanghai, London and USA (Gallery Nucleus “Line of Style: Fashion Illustration Spanning the Globe”, LA). As well my work has been published in a few books like "Great Big Book of Fashion Illustration " by Martin Dawber.
