About me

I am a textile graduate and designer with a specialism for constructed and knitted textiles. I am particularly interested in sustainability and trend forecasting, buying and merchandising. Through my experience with my university’s visiting lecturer series and my own research I have gained valuable knowledge about the requirements for trend forecasting and sustainability research and promotion.
