I am a graduate of The Edinburgh University having studied Textiles Design BA (Hons) 2020. Much of my work is inspired by the beauty of the natural world, constantly photographing everything around me to influence my designs. Experienced in hand painting, digital prints, dyeing, embroidery and devore, I encapsulate femininity and luxury in my collections. Much of my work is conceptual, identifying gaps in the market and creating collections which have depth in the development journey, but also in their meaning, with sustainability being at the heart of my work and intrinsic to my designs. Each collection is epitomised by a clear brand vision, which demonstrates my business acumen and also gives my designs relevance and context in today’s market.
To compliment my training at Edinburgh, working in design led businesses FG4 by George Davies, a women’s and kids wear fashion brand, and visiting factories in India gave an understanding into the development process of a collection from concept to order and an insight into the cost make up of a garment, whilst De Gournay, a high end Interior design company, gave hands on experience of designing bespoke artwork to a customer’s brief in the luxury market.
