About me
I have always been interested by fashion design, ever since I was small. I would look at the dresses worn by celebs and come up with my own designs on pieces of paper. That interest started to develop into a passion when I chose Fashion and Design at secondary school. I continued to learn about fashion and design for 8 years, having recently graduated with 3 distinctions. I have learnt how to research and collate inspiration images to produce a sketchbook to then be used to design and cohesive collection. I have also learn how to make pattern and sew giving me the ability to think technically when I am designing garments; this allows me to think about the constructions, the fabrics and the finishes. I have also learnt how to use Photoshop and illustrator for various design jobs such as illustrations, tech packs, print designs and more. I have grown and developed so much in the last couple of years and now it’s time to make use of all my skills.

  • Design for a brand
    Design for a brandFor this project we were asked to design a collection for a chosen brand. I choose the brand/retail shop Monsoon. I just love their bohemian, girly romantic style.

I based my project research on Moroccan art, keeping in theme with their inspiration I also incorporated a bit of bohemian style into it. From the moodbaord I put together I created a print mixing brush inks (on paper) and digital design (photoshop). I then
  • Enchanted Forest
    Enchanted ForestFor this project we were asked to create 3 prints and create a range plan with them. So for 1 print I created 5 boards of 8 styles of dresses and have the print on them in different variation. I change the size, colour and position of the print. I love designing on the computer and mt work reflects that. My theme for my prints was enchanted forest, looking at the dark mystical side of nature.

  • Fractured Artisan
    Fractured ArtisanFor this project we had a selection of words to choose from, I choose the words Fractured, Bright, Cut, Eclectic and Smooth. For this project I went to a couple of museums to find inspiration, looking at things that my words related to. My main focus was gemstones, I liked the fractured shapes and the mixture of colour. With this project i create different textile samples, inspired by things i had seen in museums or galleries. This lead to design ideas and a final 10 which I illustrated using co
  • 1920's project
    1920's projectFor this project we had to pick a decade and design a collection for a shop. My chosen shop was JOY which has a very pretty, feminine style of clothes. After colating research and creating some textile design to fill a sketchbook I came up with 60 fashion design ideas and from that picked 14 as my final designs. I used photoshop to draw my final illustrations. I also had to do a range plan which included 3 colour variation. (please note this is a fraction of the whole project, feel free to con
