About me

I am a London born Womenswear Designer. I graduated with 1st class Honours at the university for the Creative Arts in July 2017 studying Fashion Textiles Print. My graduate collection was showcased within graduate fashion week and New Designers and featured in contributor magazine. My work in general is based on Expression and exploring, using my florals to communicate that and spending my time exploring every inch of kew gardens to create bold, eye-catching prints. My curiousity in nature and the issue of many rare flora and fauna going instinct. I decided to take the role of a bontanist who travel the world to collect the seeds of the rare flowers and plants because in years to come we may never see them at the height of thier beauty. In my own way I wanted to create a memory like the bontanists and revive the inctinct by creating bold, colourful prints and garments that reflect the magnificence of what came from nature its self. Each piece has a collection of different flowers celebrating every petal, giving each print a unique touch.
