Graduate of the BA (Hons) Fashion Textiles course at London College of Fashion with an experimental approach to design and affinity for colour, textiles and material innovation. Previous degree in illustration allowed me to exercise strong drawing and conceptual thinking skills, which are continually integrated into my work, which is described as unconventional yet, wearable with a feminine touch.
As part of my final major project, the idea of fashioned-objects that grow with the wearer over time was explored drawing inspiration from Western charm jewellery and its variants worldwide. Further research into the concept resulted in a collection of luxurious, knitted art jewellery pieces, which uniquely showcase the idea of building forms through the use of unconventional materials and techniques. These ‘one-off’ pieces are geared towards sophisticated women of any age who enjoy ‘making statements’ through dress which allow their personalities to shine just like a piece of charm jewellery.
