A graduate from Winchester School of Art, in History of Art, Michelle started her career in fashion assisting menswear stylist Simon Foxton and womenswear stylist Jonathan Kaye. It was during this time that she started contributing to SHOWstudio.com where she worked on various film and web based fashion shoots.
