Frassy is a personal style story- told by me, my spontaneous overflow of fashion, where I share my daily outfit choices in the wonderful city I call home: Paris, France. Frassy started as a casual creative pursuit while I was studying English Literature at Durham University. I grew bored with my degree and felt claustrophobic living in such an insular student town, so I started snapping photos of my “student-on-a-budget” wardrobe.
After graduating, Frassy landed me a place on the Fashion Journalism MA course at Central Saint Martins. But after a spontaneous change of heart, I decided to move to Paris and start pursuing fashion blogging as a career. Since my first visit at 16, I had fallen completely in love with the city. and I had always, always dreamed of living in Paris. So off I went, with 2 suitcases and no friends in the city – I moved into a crumbling but irresistibly charming 1 bedroom in the heart of the Left Bank, just off Boulevard Saint Germain.
At 25, I have now lived in the city of lights for 3 years. Since then, Frassy has become my full-time employment but also, a brand that represents me, my style and approach to fashion. Paris has played host to some incredible collaborations and career highlights- I am happy to call this city my home. I also often run around the city working as a freelance photographer and occasionally, a freelance writer too. Last year, I signed on with a Talent Agency who represent me as fashion personality and brand influencer. I recently launched my own clothing line, under my own name, “Audrey Leighton”.
There are exciting plans in the Frassy Future. I am so thankful for my readers’ support over the years. It truly is both inspiring and motivational to have such a wonderful audience. Email, tweet/facebook me as often as you like, I love hearing from you! And I do hope you all continue to follow my foolish, completely crazy fashion journey!
