About me
Never wanting to stop learning and innovating, my ambition is integration within progressive creative brands, bringing a circular and regenerative approach to contemporary womens and menswear. I believe in the strength of timeless design, taking influence from our surroundings, and combining with a wide-ranging curiosity for the arts, the historic and futures offers the potential for creating a collection of timeless, flawless crafted items. I offer a refined knowledge and lengthy experience in garment design and development from conception through to realisation, within research, materials, and garment realisation, along with an ardent motivation for progression, whilst understanding the need for collaboration. I pride myself on my talent for interpreting a brief, having an educated eye for detail, a luxury ethos, and uncompromising creativity.... all without the ego.
