Knitwear for Fashion Womenswear Design graduate from The Winchester School of Art. I have over 1 years firsthand design experience, having worked in a number of different studios designing and creating many knitted and woven garments as well as a 6 outfit final collection for my own work. I process a sensitivity to yarn choices and attention to details within my knitted techniques and finishing. I am motivated by challenge and work exceeding well under pressure to strict deadlines. I thrive collaborating as a team to achieve higher goals as well individually to inspire others. Excellent communication skills, it is my responsibility to bring in creative ideas at critics and meetings, to speak up and share them, and communicate them in a way that everyone can understand. Work has been selected to represent Winchester School of Art in their London show at The Vinyl Factory in which only 20 students are shown. Also selected & featured by NOT JUST A LABEL, Texprint, Purpose Of It, New York publication HEAVEN HAS HEELS, GFW, VOGUE & STORM model managements NEW FACES portfolios. Knitted swatches have been sold to Sophie Steller & displayed at SPINEXPO in Shanghai.
