Seana began writing for websites at the mere age of sixteen; she started out as an album reviewer, and then branched out into band interviews. Soon after, she pursued her degree in English and Journalism at the University of King’s College.

After a realization that fashion was her real passion, she shifted towards fashion journalism. Seana felt that Halifax was the perfect place to begin her understanding of fashion. She began to notice unique styles by perusing the streets, enabling her larger understanding of how to cultivate her own style.

Seana is also a movie and television fanatic; this has translated into her journalism. Her specialty is ‘Get The Look’ posts, showing our readers how to transform the styles they see on the big screen into their everyday lives. Seana hopes to make it big in fashion industry after she graduates from university, whilst continuing her career in journalism.
