About me

 

I am a confident and energetic person who is passionate about garment construction and styling. I enjoy analysing seasonal fashion trends and remaining up to date on emerging styles, whilst still having my own aesthetic and unique approach to enhance a team dynamic. I am positive and unflappable when it comes to styling and collaborating as well as predicting upcoming trends. Having studied fashion at university and working in retail for some time I have experience assisting photographers, creative designers, make up artists, hair/stylists and visual merchandisers. Whilst at university my fashion illustration work was chosen to feature in Volt magazine, it was a fashion photography and illustration collaboration, solely by me. My work has also lent itself to fashion due to its multimedia context. Whilst at college my final piece was named 'A fly without wings can achieve great things' which merged sewing and illustration in a number of wooden frames. At the end of my diploma I achieved a distinction. For this course for my final major project I made around 20 bears I used sewing skills to manipulate various material swatches of a similar colour brief and morph them onto the bears so that each individual had a stylish personality of its own. I am an individual candidate because of my background in illustration and fashion. I have a keen eye and believe I would do well to progress within this industry.

  • Within this course I achieved a Merit. My final piece was named 'A fly without wings can achieve great things' and was a sewn/illustrative collaboration in a number of wooden frames. The illustrations depicted the life of a fly who had been born without a fly's key ingredient-it's wings, and still as the title suggests progressed on to be top of his class. A children's story with mixed media and humour. I was very proud of this piece at the time and I believe it still holds it's own today, it is unique, quirky and carries a great message of determination and self belief.
