About me

 

I am a footwear designer with a background in product design. I have completed my MA in Fashion Footwear at London College of Fashion in 2012, having previously managed my own footwear brand. Because of my education and working experience I have developed a range of skills that allow me to be part of each stage of the design process, from research to prototyping. I have over 10 years of experience using CAD software, strong research and creative skill, excellent illustration and 3D modeling skills as well as good knowledge of footwear construction, experience in hand-making footwear and digital manufacturing. Recently I have been designing digital customised accessories and footwear. I am looking for an opportunity where I can use my creativity and passion for shoes.
