Little White Dress


I’m Alice. I launched The Surrey Edit as a way of exploring my interests in books, fashion, art, photography, food…

After a year’s foundation course at art school, a degree in English Literature and an MA in Journalism, I went on to do internships at glossy fashion magazines (including exciting titles like Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour magazine) as well as local and national newspapers, before finding my own space on here!

I have recently been working on illustrations of Surrey Bunny – a hand-drawn bunny rabbit! I made a stop-motion film of her in action Click here to see it and click here to read all about it.

As you can imagine, it takes a long time to produce each video but I pick up my pens and pencils when I can!
