Miranda Almond grew up in a leafy part of southwest London with a love of fashion from a very early age. Endless hours were spent dressing up in clothes handed down by her elder cousins or collected on the way from Jumble sales (an early passion), in particular she remembers a bridesmaids dress that was pretty much all she wore from age 3-6, along with a pair of champagne coloured heels more than several sizes too big.

As a teenager she discovered the ‘glossies’, magazines such as Vogue and Elle along with the cooler titles such as i-D and The Face which she devoured with a fervour and it was then she decided that working for one of them was what she wanted to do. Her first job was answering the phones at i-D magazine at the time when David Sims and Craig McDean along with Edward Enniful were getting the first flush of success in their careers too. It was an exciting time and she knew she was somewhere special and surrounded by supremely talented people and it solidified her ambition even more to be part of it. After finishing up her degree she moved on to assisting Uber Stylist, Katie Grand at style bible, Dazed and Confused, where she learnt everything she needed to know to start doing her own shoots about three years later. After six years she left to work again for Katie at her newly launched magazine POP, where she also contributed to the last issues of The Face before it folded. It was whilst working there that she was approached by British VOGUE to take the role of Fashion Editor where she stayed for 8 years.

Now freelance she enjoys working regularly for American Vogue, Vogue Turkey, Harper's Bazaar, British Elle, China Elle and Instyle US, as well as clients such as Matches, Barbour, Hobbs, Toast and Alice Temperley.  Miranda lives in London and is married to the artist Darren Almond with whom she has 2 children.

Established over a decade ago, in 2003, D+V Management has successfully set the bench mark for independent, bespoke representation of the World's top photographic, hair, make up, styling and set design artists.

D+V’s founders, comprising the Scottish-French alliance of Natalie Doran and Laurence Vuillemin, lay down the agency’s foundation of seeking out and nurturing photographers with an indelible signature. Steve Hiett,Mel Bles, Nick Dorey, Brett Lloyd and Jacob Sutton are amongst this hand-chosen fold whose unique styles distinguish their work. 

D+V’s photographers regularly work with international Vogue titles as well as The Gentlewoman, i-D, AnOther and Numéro. Commercial clients include luxury houses such as YSL, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Dior. And increasingly, global clients such as Giorgio Armani, YSL, Burberry, Missoni, Guess, Fendi, Topshop and Y3, work with the film side of D+V. 

Having hit the ground running in 2003, by 2007 D+V was ready to expand. Natalie and Laurence were delighted to invite the highly reputed, Emma Bryant, to join their partnership to oversee the Hair, Makeup, Styling and Set Design side of the business. 

This arm of D+V encompasses equally esteemed names. Sam Bryant, James Pecis, James Rowe, Benjamin Puckey, Neil Moodie, Hanna al Sayed, Naomi Miller, and Leith Clark are represented by D+V. 

From set design to hair and make-up as well as production services for film and photography; D+V can manage a client’s project in its totality in-house; from conception to final product.

As a further expansion of D+V’s wings, a New York office opened in 2009. Working in tandem with London, the American side of the business demonstrates the international reach of the agency not to mention diminishing the hurdle of awkward timelines. 

Working with the most reputable fashion professionals, D+V is set to soar as it heads into its next decade.
