About me
In my design I pride myself on respecting and conserving historical dress through innovative design, combining current trends, past fashions and new ideas. Striving to maintain a space where a creative attitude and respect for good dressmaking is achieved. I have worked as a seamstress at a textile alteration shop for two years and inturned at Yang Li. As well as studying I have had a freelance buisness for the past two years which is primarily illustration based. I am a 2020 graduate from the University for the Creative Arts Epsom with a First Class Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fashion.

I wanted to explore the controversial presence, even glorification, of adultery within the otherwise enforced monogamy of an aristocratic society. Focusing on the most vulnerable member of the relationship, I explored the life of someone
