About me
Hey, I’m Lillie �� I’m a fashion design & marketing grad and sustainability enthusiast. Here’s my story ⬇️ In 2016 I began my adventure to achieve my career dreams by moving to Galashiels and studying for my degree in fashion design & marketing. Since then I have: � Kept up to date with design, marketing and content trends on a daily basis to aid collection research, development and final execution. � Discovered a new passion for graphic design, and undertook 4 years of Adobe training from a Graphic Design professional at university. ✂️ Altered and adapted basic pattern blocks to create original silhouettes, and made 30+ garments and toiles whilst at university. (and lots more since graduating) � Completed an internship at Elsie and Fred and produced detailed CAD technical packs on Adobe Illustrator for manufacturers in China. � Interned backstage at events company Fashions Finest, preparing garments for the catwalk. � Developed and delivered lessons on sewing, quilting and fine arts to children of a vast age range at a summer camp in Vermont. I used my initiative and creative ability to assist children in solving problems. � Finished my degree in June 2020 and began working as a sewing machinist at leading PPE manufacturer Alpha Solway. � Had my work feature in Harper’s Bazaar, Oct issue 2020 under Global Young Talent. � Launched my own sustainable womenswear brand, designing and creating made-to-order clothing with original print designs. ✨ Actively seeking a grad design role ✨ � Want to get in touch? lilliebell.shop@hotmail.com

  • AUDACITY: Up-cycled Graduate Collection
    AUDACITY: Up-cycled Graduate CollectionMy graduate collection was heavily inspired by the punk rock subculture. It is about energy, rebellion, freedom and individuality in a world where one should be a ‘good, polite girl’. Looking at renaissance paintings and exploring the change in attitudes over time prompted the concept of merging the idea of femininity and the punk subculture.
