About me

As a designer I am interested in exploring function and aesthetics within textile and garment design. My current work pushes the boundaries of cross-disciplinary textiles, combining knitted and woven textiles and developing techniques to join the two structures. Through this design process I have developed a collection of functional womenswear garments that display innovative transitions in textiles.
