About me
I am a recent summer 2020 graduate from Manchester Metropolitan University with a BA (hons) degree in Fashion Design and Technology, specialising in sportswear. As part of my degree I undertook a 12 month internship with PUMA as a designer in the teamsport department. In my final year of studies I have aimed to explore the new and exciting ways fashion, lifestyle and innovation interlink. I have taken a particular interest in 3D design using systems such as Clo3D. Being able to design and sample in a virtual work is integral for fashion to move towards a more sustainable future. @i.am_m.i.a - instagram

The project explores a future reality of Martian inhabitation and explores the practicality and function needed in clothing in order to survive on the red planet. As a graduate of the class of 2020 - my time at university was cut short. However, due to the nature of my project, realistic final garments are shown below through the use of the software CLO-3D.
