Katie Longshaw-Pye

Freelance Stylist

  • Location: North West
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I have worked for the best department stores in the world in fast paced, reactive and creative roles. After creating an exhibition for Harvey Nichols, I was head-hunted to work on the Home Interiors Visual Team at Harrods where I styled the floor, events, the launch of the film 'Great Gatsby' and Christmas World. I was then promoted onto the Window Display Team where I worked as a Designer and Stylist for both interior design and fashion windows, and it was here that I won a few awards. I chose, sourced, made and commissioned props for the windows, and then dressed the windows to theme. I enjoyed project managing Interior Design Windows, and highlights included working with Sandy Powell (3 time Oscar winning costume Designer) on decorating the 'Cinderella' windows to re-create the film sets. I’ve just left the position of Creative Store Presentation Assistant Manager of Selfridges to pursue a freelance career. At Selfridges I chosen all the Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment, dressed the store for events, themes and trends whilst supervising a team of 5.

I'm now based in Lancashire and working freelance:

- photoshoot and still-life styling, fashion and homewares

- film and TV, prop buying, dressing and decorating

- shop windows and retail interiors, design, installation and consultation

- weddings and epic party styling
