About me

Hi! My name is Hazel Symons. I have won multiple awards, including The Christopher Bailey Gold Award and Creative Catwalk Award at Graduate Fashion Week 2016. I am a bright and self-motivated individual with excellent organisation and time management skills. I have an exquisite eye for detail and quality, and have a measure twice, cut once attitude. I have extensive knowledge of pattern cutting, sewing, design and CAD. My BA Graduate collection is a series of six flat pack interchangeable outfits which explores innovative construction and handcrafts. I have a long-standing interest in both menswear and womenswear and like to explore new avenues to gain new inspiration.
