        • Working in this small business developed my all round skills as a designer. I learnt traditional craft from the design process to pattern cutting to using industrial machinery to produce professional handbags. I understood the costings and general running of this business and helped with bespoke orders, leather repairs and advising customers on how to best care for their products.

        • During my time at Texmodel I learnt about commercial fashion, how it is designed and manufactured in short spaces of time. I used a combination of hand drawings and photoshop to create bag designs, colour specs and work on concept development.
