Who Am I?

Zena Utsalo is a professional Fashion Assistant and freelance Fashion Stylist with formal education in fashion design, media, and business. Currently based in London and recently graduated from the University of the Arts London, Zena looks to seek new opportunities within sectors of the industry that integrate both art and fashion. Faithful to the art of storytelling through visual imagery, she creates avant content that both challenges and subverts standards of traditionality within common themes race and religion. Outside of producing work, you can find Zena watching foreign films, listening to Swedish rap music, and perusing archival Helmut Lang collections.
