About Samantha Mcnally

Samantha McNally, 20 Currently living in Sheffield, I have recently finished three years at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston studying Fashion Entrepreneurship. During this time I have gained valuable experience in a range of areas from trend forecasting to never leaving the house without an umbrella when your that far up north! Being a huge fan of music, art and fashion, I love going to gigs and events across the country with friends donning my usual stand out vintage printed shirt. Also I am an avid user of social media even if it is just to have a little nosey at what people are doing. I have spent the last 5 years working in retail alongside my education, within large soul crushing clothing retailers to much more interesting small vintage and wedding boutiques. I learnt very quickly that the phrase ‘there are no stupid questions’ is a lie, as anyone in retail will know that there are endless stupid questions asked on a daily basis. Last summer was also spent Interning at a London PR agency, learning all the ins and outs of the business whilst also having an incredible time working with stylists and having some fan girl moments of my own when celebrities visited the showroom. All in all I am outgoing and always looking for something new to experience with a wicked sense of humor and a taste for sarcasm ( much to my mothers despair).
