About me
As a Textile design graduate from Nottingham Trent University. I am currently exploring career opportunities within the world of textile design for sportswear, material innovation and trend forecasting.

  • Oshun: Goddess of Gold
    Oshun: Goddess of GoldTo begin my project I began by mind mapping the different goddesses that I could potentially focus on, researching their meaning, then I pulled my favourite/most inspirational aspects of them out; I particularly liked the idea of opulence and luxury, reflected through indulgent colours and lavish fabrics.

A mixture of triangular and linear contours shapes designed for the sole are inspired by architecture and movement captured in light. The footwear collection combines 3D printing technology with my digital embroidery and digital ‘trompe l’oeil’ prints alongside technical mat
  • Tabby Lazenbury X Anglo Accessories
    Tabby Lazenbury X Anglo AccessoriesI really enjoyed creating a project for Anglo Accessories, designing 3 bags for ASOS ladies for Spring Summer 22. Tapping into mood boosting colours to bring the season to life, also being inspired by hand crafted techniques such as weaving straw. Research into trends for the upcoming season also reflected classic silhouettes to create investment pieces, using high quality materials to protect product longevity. I also explored modular design through my research and sketching, catering for the f
  • Tabby Lazenbury X Speedo
    Tabby Lazenbury X SpeedoDuring my internship with Speedo, with the design team at Pentland Brands in Nottingham, specifically working on the Summer 2021 Speedo ranges. I was thrilled to be supported in taking a creative, physical design approach; using paints, marbling, photography through water and projection to create an exciting archive of material of which to bring forward into print designs.
