Claudia Lucia Creative Expansion – Bristol Makeup, Stylist & Body Artist

The industry has definitely changed,; it goes without saying the impact of  social media has had in how we all communicate. Coming from the old school, pre-digital age, I can just about keep up!

Being a creative, I love exploring other avenues and challenging myself. I’ve recently returned to my fashion/styling roots and expanded to Visual Merchandising Design.

With the opening of their new showroom last year, this has given me the opportunity to showcase their beautiful, high quality products. Also to come, my entry of Body Factory at the stunning Eden Project.
