About me

Hello! I'm a BA Performance Costume graduate from the Edinburgh College of Art, UoE. After graduating from the university I have moved to London and I am starting to build my career in fashion and textiles design working as an embroidery design assistant for bridal wear. I have an eclectic shake of experiences working with Theatre and Film costumes, Fashion, and Graphic Design that all shaped my style of clothing design and injected discipline and empathy into my work culture. Over my last year of studies I have specifically concentrated on environmentally sustainable designs - I was looking into zero waste and up-cycling techniques, as well as the use of organic and recyclable materials. I applied my knowledge outside of my studies too - designing zero waste cut jumpers for my brand - GREIA. The knowledge gained helped me to secure a project based designer position at a fashion up-cycling company - One Memoir.
