Interior Styling and Design Assistant
Hello, I’m Suzy.
A freelance assistant stylist, interior designer and aspiring photographer.
I left the corporate world in 2009 after 20 years working as an analyst, to set up my own personalised jewellery and gift business on notonthehighstreet.com which I ran for 10 years, building it into a successful business with a team of 6 and a beautiful seaside studio in Hove. During my time at NOTHS I was also the partner ambassador for the Sussex area, regularly holding events and helping other partners.
In 2017/2018 I renovated my new house from top to bottom and realised my love of interiors had become more of a passion than my jewellery and so stated to look for ways to incorporate interiors into my business. I was about to set up a new interiors retail business in 2019 when I realised I wanted more than a retail business after helping friends style and decorate their homes. This led me to close my business at the end of 2019 and enrol in a 3 month interior design course at KLC and a styling course at Central St Martins with Lucy Gough.
It was during this time I realised my love of products and trend led style suited the styling industry more than interior design.
I’ve since assisted Lucy Gough as an intern on a commercial shoot for Furniture Village and have a couple of other intern jobs in the pipeline, which I’m really looking forward to.
With my business background, analytical skills and interiors design certificate from KLC, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience to bring to a shoot. I like to keep my eye on the trends, create mood boards, source props, find location properties and style sets. I have a great work ethic, am friendly and make great tea, a must as an assistant!
I’d love to help with any intern or assisting work to gain as much experience in the industry as I can.
I’m very happy to travel, I have my own car and a clean driving license.
Thank you for looking at my profile and please do drop me a line if I can help in any way.
