About me

Paisley is a designer from London, studying in the Netherlands. Her focus is on visual communication through fashion and costume. Creating conceptual pieces for the emerging world. With a strong fascination for colour and its perception and representation. From studying Man and Identity Paisley became fascinated by the representation of clothing. Be it subtle or striking. Finding this meaning in garments drew Paisley to study Man, Media and Culture so she could explore the implications of fashion through a wider and more critical field.
