About me

I am a highly motivated, creative designer and writer with more than 12 years experience in fashion design and trend forecasting. I have worked with major high-street retailers in the UK, a surfwear brand based in France and become an expert in trends for the global trend forecasters WGSN. I have extensive knowledge in the kids and youth market with a high standard of CAD plus an ability to trend forecast. I write fashion pieces for online and printed editorials on an ad hoc basis for US magazine Mini MAVEN and online retailer The Wee Department Store. I predict future trends and design seasonal items for the kidswear and youth market, baby right up to young women and mens plus swimwear. I have built trends for new brands and given colour and shape advisory.
