Molly-Mae has bagged herself the job all young fashionistas dream of – creative director at her favourite brand, PrettyLittleThing.
The 22-year-old has been an ambassador for the brand since she left Love Island in 2018, securing deal after deal before finally joining the company as an official employee.
But what is a creative director, what will Molly-Mae be doing at PLT and how much does such a job typically pay?
A creative director is someone who oversees all the creative decisions at a high-level within a company.
This will include advertisements, products, logos and creative strategies.
Molly-Mae is creative director PLT UK and Europe. Her job will involve over-seeing all the high-level creative decisions listed above, but she’ll also likely be more heavily involved in the designs of the clothes now.
Having had three collections with the fashion brand, Molly will now have more of an input on all of the products PLT create, not just her own fashion ranges.
She’ll also be involved in how their products are marketed.
Molly-Mae is said to have signed a seven-figure deal with PLT as their new creative director, a figure likely in the multi-millions.
She did celebrate the career move with a £37k bracelet so…
Creative directors in the UK typically earn between £80k to £100k, but the Love Island star has already had collections with PLT worth £500k and £600k in 2018 and 2019 so it’s no surprise this latest deal is in much higher figures.
