About me
I am an exceptionally organised creative who loves the process of taking a design through to final product and taking all the steps to ensure the outcome is of high quality, with a love of the finite details. My passion and determination drive me to succeed in any role given with a positive outlook. My experience within both womenswear and menswear has given me a great understanding of RTW sampling and production management and allowed me to develop a strong ability to work within the fashion schedule. I thrive on leading as well as being an integral part of a team, I enjoy the variation and insight my previous experience has allowed me into the industry.
