About me
I am a womenswear designer dedicated to make a positive contribution in the shift how we define fashion - today and tomorrow. This means that I pay great attention to what and where I source my fabrics, maintain all production within the UK and aim to demonstrate that eco-friendly fashion can be sexy, in the hope to inspire others around me. Latex has been a fabric that I’ve specialised working with over the past few years as it withholds a great deal of possibilities in its design scope and often is being overlooked as a key fabric that does not impact the environment negatively. My enthusiasm for design, latex and seeing an opportunity in the landscape of sustainable brands that are accessible yet fashionable, lead me to the launch of my own label HANGER INC in 2013, which was recently awarded by ASOS with the ‘Fashion Discovery Award’. I believe in hiring for attitude and a culture of collaboration, where each employee is being listened to and valued for their input. I’d also hope to set an example for other designers to make the move towards a more mindful business model – an environment the earth can sustain. I’m always up for a new challenge or chat – please email if you’d like to get in touch!
    HANGER SEASON 7 A.K.A SPRING DEMON explores modern notions of feminine strength - looking specifically to Japanese Bosozoku Girl Gangs and the rebellious energy of inner-city youth as warriors in their own right.

    Heading up the production department at the London based, world-wide recognised brand Lady Lucy Latex since mid 2013.
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    In the realm of latex pieces and Japanese girlhood, London-based fashion label HANGER was born. With the vision to create a forward-thinking brand delivering both quality and accessibility, HANGER is a nod to the slow fashion movement that is seasonless and made in London. Graphic silhouettes, sci-fi aesthetics and wearable latex designs are what distinguish the garments visually and are reinterpreted in each collection of the brand.
