Ellie is currently studying for a Masters in Religious Studies at the University of Edinburgh. In September 2020 she was elected Head Blogger of the Edinburgh University Fashion Society, before being promoted to Vice President in January 2021. Under the Instagram handle @spareflares she curates and promotes sustainable fashion with an emphasis on inclusivity and originality. Her interests in intersectional feminism, politics and social justice inspire her to work towards a future for fashion that is ethically and environmentally sustainable. Upon graduating in 2022, Ellie intends to work alongside NGOs that support garment workers across the globe.
Ellie divides her time between Scotland, Newcastle upon Tyne and at home in Wales. Her great joys are charity shopping, getting lost in the woods and drinking endless cups of tea!
