About me

I graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2015, where I specialised in Womenswear Knitwear. During my time at The Royal I was a finalist in The White Company's knitwear design competition as well as for Zegna Baruffa's hand knit competition. Since graduating I have interned at Wool and the gang, sold work through M Lab and Collaborated with Christopher Raeburn. I have also worked as a Design Assistant at Concord as well as freelance designing Crochet pieces for Caitlin Charles-Jones SS17. Most recently I have been working as an Assistant knitwear designer at Xioa Li. My role at Xiao Li has been very varied, as well as designing I have to communicate with the yarn suppliers, follow the production and communicate with factories. I was also responsible for managing the interns and the everyday running of the studio. I am now looking for a new challenge within the Arts to progress my career.
