About me


I have been studying Sewing and Patten Cutting since I graduated from University in 2012, with a degree in International Politics. In these 2 years I have completed various evening and short courses to increase my knowledge of clothes making and pattern cutting. Most recently I completed an Access Course in Fashion at the London College of Fashion and the ASOS Stitching Academy Course at Fashion Enter in North London. I am currently enrolled on a course learning the Gerber Pattern Cutting program to build my digital pattern cutting skills. I also have experience in Administration and Retail. I am highly motivated and enthusiastic. I have experience working as part of a team in many different environments. I am approachable, well presented and able to establish good working relationships. I am flexible and adaptable which allows me to work in various environments. I am hard working and willing to learn and try different things.
