About me

 

Graduating July 2015 from Chelsea College of Art BA (hons) textile design. I'm a printed textiles designer specializing in hand screen printed hand dyed fabrics. My main job interests are printed textiles or costume/styling for television, film or editorials. As a designer I am constantly inspired by the over the top, trashy, sparkly, ridiculous, sequins, rhinestones, cabaret feathers, tacky words like showbiz and lame! I like to bring this glamour into my work alongside using colour and fabric quality to bring luxury to tat, but also a sense of the slightly off, an out of season seaside feeling with my fabric and colour choices. I like to create textiles with a sense of fun and glamour, bridging the gap between evening and everyday wear. I love contrasts, and my constant aim in life and in my work is to find the sparkle in the ordinary, the glamour amidst the grim. Experience in devoreé, colour devoreé, flitter printing, dye printing, pigment screen printing, using stencils as well as exposing screens. Passionate about colour i spent my final major project perfecting my dying skills especially using dip dye techniques and colour devoree. As well as considerable Photoshop and illustrator experience used to create digital textile designs, later cut patterns and vinyl cut designs.
