  • DRYSDALE : Coble Collection - Follow On Collection
    DRYSDALE : Coble Collection - Follow On CollectionThe 'Coble Collection' follows on from Drysdale's 'Crossing the Causeway Collection'. This collection seeks inspiration from the historic life at Coble Cottage, Holy Island, previous home of local fisherman James Drysdale.

My final major project inspired by the childhood memory of visiting the circus combined with influences taken from Japanese womenswear design to ensure sophistication is kept throughout the collection. Designs are exciting whilst also comfortable, to ensure children love and want to wear them.
    CHAMELEONFinal Major Project - Healthy eating creates the impression of eating a bowl of salad, cutting out carbohydrates, avoiding chocolate and sweets, but none of this is sustainable long term. We want to camouflage this stigma surrounding healthy eating because healthy eating isn’t about eating salad everyday, it’s about portion control. Adapting individual portion control needs, because everything can be healthy when adapted to the correct portions it's healthy eating in disguise.
