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.
