About me

Chantal Mcleish is a recently graduated textile designer that studied at Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. Although she specialized in Knitwear Design, she is also interested in Print Design and Styling. Her influences strongly come from her background, a Scandinavian Style: modern, clean cuts, edginess, freshness and simplicity in the garments, the unique, simple and bold color palette that is often used in her work.
