About me
Creativity and organisation are two key words that best describe me, this is why I am looking to develop my career in the world of product design. After completing both of my degrees and relevant work experience, I was able to see the different elements of creative design and how it plays a key part in the success of businesses. This is where I started to grow a passion for costume design and tailoring, I knew this is the route I wanted my career to follow. In my professional career so far, I have had a range of roles within the commercial fashion and bespoke costume design industry. I have been involved in pattern construction and manufacture, as well as pattern grading, pattern cutting, tech packs, spec sheets, quality control, trend analysis and fitting sessions. I am passionate, innovative and exceptionally organised. I have been able to develop a multitude of skills and knowledge that can be utilised in a professional environment. This is why I am keen to develop and broaden my skillset within the Design Industry; I am seeking work experience for a highly proactive and fast learning individual.
