In 2019 she completed a fully-funded PhD at the Centre for Fashion Curation at the London College of Fashion, exploring strategies for presenting fashion satire by devising a site-responsive exhibition proposal for Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill house. She has been awarded research grants by The Lewis Walpole Library at Yale University and NIDA Art Colony of Vilnius Arts Academy. Her recent exhibitions include: ‘T-Shirt: Cult, Culture, Subversion (Fashion & Textile Museum), 'Fashion & Freedom' (14-18 Now / Manchester Art Gallery), Women, Fashion, Power (Design Museum) and 'Digital Encounters' (Herbert Reade Gallery). Her current research explores graphic satires of fashion subcultures, Egyptomania and fashion and the history of fashion historical illustration.
