About me
I have recently completed my BA Honours Fashion Textile Design degree in 2020 which I studied at De Montfort University in Leicester. From studying Fashion Textile Design I have discovered that my specialism is knitwear and from this have decided that this is the career I want to pursue. I use mainly domestic knitting machines but also has experience using the industrial machines. Although I specialise in knit, I have much knowledge in fashion design, and have experience in print design and embroidery. My work shows that I have an eye for detail which shows within her designs, nothing is ever plain. I thrive from working with difficult yarns and techniques in which portrays beautifully. My signature style is creating pieces that look elegant with the way the drape and the details within. Currently looking for work within the industry.
