A graduate of Royal Holloway, University of London, I had always had big aspirations.
My first job was for BHS/Arcadia as a Buying Associate. Here I learnt that determination and perserverance would set me in good stead for the success I craved.
Following this buying stint, I went on to work for a men’s luxury fashion agency as a Sales and Marketing Coordinator. I put my best foot forward and created flourishing social networks for the brands that were under my wing. Picking up a flair for styling along the way, I created my website to make my finite dreams a reality.
I offer freelance fashion styling, for brands and for individuals.
I won Best Stylist at Tellus Fashion in May 2012. http://www.tellusfashion.com/magazine/stylist-competition-winner-samantha-ria
Now a Fashion Insider for LookLab.com, you can view my profile here: http://www.looklab.com/samantharia
I am Stylist to Olympic Gymnast, and Strictly Come Dancing Champion, Louis Smith, and also work alongside many other celebrities in the sporting and music world. Biggest accomplishment would be styling and creatively directing the production of Louis’ 2013 calendar.
