Natalie a textile designer who specialises in stitch, both hand and digital. Her work is bold in colour, texture and pattern that best describes her style as 'tongue and cheek'. Her outcomes are driven by her excitement of the fashion industry and her intensive research of current trends. Her work also displays a personal reflection of herself as a designer and the products that she desires to wear. Her intensive knowledge of CAD embroidery allows her work to be highly professional and elaborate whilst keeping elements of wear-ability that puts the products within a commercial industry. Whereas her beaded components give the textile a bespoke finish that would sit in a couture field. Natalie hand renders her fashion visualisations, as an ongoing process throughout her projects that helps her develop her projects which provides a story telling approach to her visual language.
