About me

After completing my Undergraduate studies in Fashion Design and Marketing, I wanted to further explore territories where fashion, garment construction and technology overlap. I undertook training in Computer-Assisted Design and Manufacturing, engaged myself in collaborative projects and worked as an Editor’s Assistant to expand my industry experiences. I enjoy learning new techniques and skills; even during my studies, I undertook the task of Production Assistant for a few independent designers. In 2015, I enrolled in an MA in Wearable Futures and later in 2016, through the Ravensbourne Incubation Program, started my own company in R&D and the education of Wearable Tech.
