Originally from the United Kingdom, Buenos Aires has become my home and my fashion haven. Before moving to Argentina, I lived in Shanghai for five years, working as a fashion writer, editor, and costume stylist. Thanks to my wanderlust and love of red wine, I found myself moving to Argentina in 2010, and have since fallen in love with the city for its beautiful streets and style. Fashion is my passion, and I absolutely love shopping for other people and helping them discover their personal style. As a personal shopper, I wanted to give my clients something more. Fashion isn’t just about clothes, it’s about the designers, the craft, and the influence it takes from the city that surrounds it. I then decided to create shopping tours to give people the ability to fully experience Buenos Aires’ unique fashion scene. Through my tours, I love sharing my beautiful adopted city while also helping travelers navigate the diverse fashion scene it has to offer. I hope to deliver a personalized, unique, and fun shopping experience that helps you find exactly what you’ve been searching for while also giving you insight into the local fashion scene.
