    Studio Assistanttypical freaks
     - London, United KingdomInternship
    Assisting in screen print development and garment construction for the AW18 stockists and as a sample cutter on the SS19 collection working towards final pieces for Paris show rooms and e-commerce. My internship here had a great focus on product and screen print development, producing design ideas across garments, soft accessories and jewellery. It brought me back into a print studio where I used industrial equipment to fulfill large scale stockist orders and gained experience with assisting and casting for a look book shoot.

I designed and developed the hand and digital embroidered motifs alongside Aniela Fidler, translating 2D imagery and collage work into final embroideries and vinyl transfers for fabrics and garments. My internship here gave me experience in fabric sourcing and strengthened my existing skills in Swarovski embellishment, hand sewing and toiling.

    Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Fashion Design and TextilesMiddlesex University
     - London, United Kingdom
    Activities and societies: I completed my hybrid degree of textiles and fashion design with a 2:1. With a focus in printed fabrics, my specialism gave me a wide range of technical and design skills within silk screen printing and dye pastes. During my degree I was taught by a number of designers including Louise Gray, James Theseus Buck of Rottingdean Bazaar and Mark Eley of Eley Kishimoto. In my second year of study I undertook a 6-week placement with designer Mary Benson as part her creative team for her AW16 LFW show.
