About me

My name is Ashley Victoria and I am a designer. I have also previously worked freelance across childrenswear, babywear and womenswear for a range of clients in the UK and internationally, designing shape, graphics and print. I have experience both in-house and freelance for various companies and brands in the UK across childrenswear, womenswear and menswear. My freelance work has involved me working on a number of product areas within fashion product as well as print & graphic design. I work from my studio at home, dividing my time between my design work, teaching and research. My education is a hybrid of technology, womenswear design and pattern-cutting, and this has contributed to my development as versatile and knowledgable design professional. I am commercially aware and able to work to a brand identity, and within this I able to create newness of product injected with my design handwriting. I have gained a solid understanding of consumer behaviour, brand identity and strategy development. I am interested in the creation of new ideas and strategies for business success. I am always open to freelance opportunities within design and illustration and welcome the contact from likeminded professionals. I absolutely love what I do and am living my dreams everyday, if you would like to contact me about my work or anything I can help you with, please feel free and lets have a natter.
