About me
I am a 2020 fashion graduate from Manchester School of Art / Manchester Metropolitan University and specialise in being predominantly a womenswear and knitwear designer. I often start my design process by styling existing garments either on the stand or on the body to create interesting layers and silhouettes. As well as influencing my initial design process, this also allows me to create a persona of what my muse would look and behave like. the process of styling garments allows me to translate something 3D into a flat design by using various techniques including collages, sketching and sampling which I can then quickly build up a range of design ideas from.
Projects
  • A Nostalgic Future
    A Nostalgic FutureThe project ‘A Nostalgic Future’ has largely been inspired by a recent trip to Tokyo. The project features my own primary photographs alongside other influential sources such as vintage lingerie and nightwear, Japanese pop culture including ‘90s street wear and anime, as well as themes addressing the innocence of childhood clashed with the brutal reality of adulthood for women.
