About me

 

Hard working and curios fashion designer with experience in Trend forecasting and fast-paced design just graduated with honours from Central Saint Martin keen to work as designer assistant using the skills gained during all those experiences. From a Jewellery background and the know how of the creative process through different type of research, design development, sketches, draping and stand work and a real interest in textile area and handcraft techniques (deepened through personal research and attending trade shows) I am able to be a good support for the design team.
