I have always prided myself on being an individual and choosing to express that in the way I dress. Although I might not fit into the 'traditional' mould of a model, I frequently do just that as part of the UK group Alternative Fashion Fest.
Founded in 2015 by Jane Bellis, AFF seeks to challenge the stereotypes that persist in the fashion industry. It places particular emphasis on shedding the discrimination often faced by members of alternative subcultures, as well as stigmas and problems of issues such as mental health, disability, homophobia, racism and bullying.
Below you can find photography series I have featured in, and various shots from AFF shows across the country.
