I met Vicki Lord through a previous client, and I booked her for a few photoshoots when I needed a talented hairstylist.
Vicki Lord appointed my services after seeing the results I had achieved for a friend of hers. I have been working with Vicki since January 2012, and have managed the majority of her PR and Communication throughout this time, including remotely from Australia. Appointment ended Autumn 2017. Vicki and I are still in contact and have formed a close friendship.
To establish Vicki Lord as a recognisable session stylist in the fashion and bridal industry.
Continual PR that gradually builds awareness of Vicki’s talent and brand name, and stamps her as an expert in her field, namely as a creative who is inspired by her avant-garde hairstyles and catering these elaborate creations for red carpet, events and for brides.
SUMMARY OF ACTIVITY:
I have initiated and nurtured relationships between Vicki and some big brands and industry leaders, resulting in collaborations, published photo-shoots, cover placement, regular interviews online and in national and international print, stage presentation, video presentation and live television presentation.

Kelvin Barron styled the young actress, in an amazing full-length, strapless, golden dress with sequin detail across the bodice. Her Grecian goddess style hair and make-up was based on that of Angelina Jolie – Shona’s inspiration for her look for the NTAs. Emily-Rose demonstrates how the eye make-up can be re-created on her how-to video HERE. There were several videos of Shona too including WhatsonTV. Vicki Lord has worked with Shona and other Eastender actors since 2012, including Hetti Bywater.
