How did you first hear about Motel?: I heard about Motel a few years ago, I can’t remember how, but I then had the opportunity to have a better look at the stock at the Clothes Show Live, at Birmingham’s NEC.
Why did you choose to apply to become a Student Ambassador?: I chose to apply for the Student Ambassador scheme as I was starting at University studying fashion journalism. I’d promised myself I was going to grab every opportunity I could as they highly encourage us to get work experience and get ourselves out there: I thought this would be a great chance! I’ve also always loved Motel as a brand, as they’re very customer orientated so was interested in getting to know the brand better.
What do you hope to do after graduating?: As I’m only a first year, I’m not exactly sure what I want to do when I graduate, but I’m hoping to get into the media industry. I’m quite interested in working at a magazine, possibly writing or styling, something like that. Failing that, I’m aslso interested in retail so would love to work for a brand of some sort.
What is your favourite Motel piece in your wardrobe?: My favourite pieces of Motel in my wardrobe are my Laureen Shift Dress in the black and white city scene print and the Molly Scoop Back Vest in Monochrome Triangle, as they’re easy to dress up or down.
How would you describe your personal style?: I can’t really think of a word to describe to my personal style. I tend to just buy things I like, whether they’re ‘on trend’ or not, but I’m definitely not opposed to following a trend if it’s something that I like/suits me. I guess I tend to dress smart casual, I’m never too casual or too plain.
