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.

D+V Management was founded by Natalie Doran and Laurence Vuillemin in 2003. With a reputation for finding photographers who create work with a strong signature, names including Liz Collins, Mel Bles and Jacob Sutton are part of a selective, hand picked roster.

D+V photographers continually work with magazines including international editors of Vogue, Numéro, The Gentlewoman, i-D and AnOther while commercial clients range from Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton to Givenchy and Christian Dior.

D+V encourage work with their photographers to pursue artistic projects, and they regularly stage exhibtions. D+V photographers have also collaborated on books published by the World’s most prestigious publishers including Taschen and Steidl.

The agency expanded in 2007 – when renowned agent, Emma Bryant joined as business partner with Natalie and Laurence, to oversee the development of a Hair, Make Up, Styling and Set Design arm of the business. Instrumental in the careers of Benjamin Puckey, Kay Montano, James Pecis and Sam Bryant. Emma brought in established and new talents from all sectors of the industry. The style division now represents twenty five of the World's most talented and visionary Hair, Make up, Stylist and Set design artists, working with such esteemed publications as the Vogue titles worldwide, W, Love and iD. Clients include Chanel, L'Oreal, Burberry, Calvin Klein, MAC and Sephora.

Production services for film and photography are also available. With a dedicated production team who work across stills and film projects, in-house, from start to finish.

As a next step, the agency opened a New York office in 2009. Working in tandem with London, the American side of the business demonstrates the international reach of D+V – an ability to champion creative in new markets. Still working with only the best fashion professionals, the agency continues to flourish as it moves towards it’s next decade.
