Charlotte James is a Creative Director, filmmaker, and educator from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. Since 2014 Charlotte has been focused on making work that is socially engaged with community participation. She is interested in exploring different avenues in order to collaborate with communities through fashion, film, creative workshops for youth working alongside photographer and educator Clémentine Schneidermann on their long term project “it's called ffasiwn”. Charlotte's upbringing and the people she grew up around have had a massive influence upon her work. In homage to her youth, a large portion of her work has been made in her hometown, featuring family, friends, and locals to the area. Charlotte’s personal work has led her on commercial collaborations through creative direction, styling, casting, and filmmaking for BBC New Creatives, Ace & Tate, Gucci, Helmut Lang, and Sony Music.
