I am a Tokyo-based Creative Director, Photographer and Trend Forecaster. Inspired by everyday beauty and street-led trends, I help brands shine in their own, authentic way.

About Me

Having started out as a Womenswear Buyer specialised in Korean fashion, I fell in love with Creative Direction and photography, and have been specialising in Creative Direction for start-ups for the last 8 years. I’ve helped teams build cool brands from the ground up, through branding, design & art direction.

I cover Fashion, Lifestyle, Interior Design and Travel, with a particular interest in Japan and South Korea. I’m on the constant lookout for fresh trends that emerge from the streets, roaming Tokyo’s cafes, under-the-radar neighbourhoods, hidden restaurants, exhibitions, pop-up stores… etc, capturing my finds with my film cameras. My latest area of interest: trends relating to parents, kids and families. Since becoming a parent, playgrounds have become an endless source of inspiration, with innovative street style and slice-of-life beauty.

Born in France, I grew up in Paris, Cairo, Copenhagen, Nice and London. After studying in the UK (London School of Economics and University of Oxford), I started my career in London, before moving to Berlin and Seoul. I live in Tokyo (but work globally) with my Computer Scientist husband and two daughters that keep me on my toes.


I use both film and digital cameras to create images that are both aspirational and highly relatable, with an authentic and dynamic feel.
