Endource is a start-up company providing quick and easy access to the latest trends and products, created by the owner of Secret Escapes. I use trend research methods, magazines, blogs and my own fascination for fashion to select on trend garments and accessories that have been endorsed by ‘experts’ within these sources. The products I choose go live on site immediately for users to view and purchase via the links provided. Each product can then link to other items chosen within the outlined trend. This keeps me up to date with trends from Catwalk to street style.

Working directly with the high end designer; I aided in the design, creative pattern cutting and production stages of one-off garments.

I created print designs combining her past work with fresh inspirations using paint to create artworks that were then used within current screen print designs. I transferred these updated print ideas into hand illustrated designs for a younger interpretation.
I worked within the womenswear knitwear department using multiple fabrics, assisting with research and the design process.
