I am a Womenswear designer focusing predominantly specializing in woven. With a strong focus on drawing inspiration from emotion, memories and personal experience I have also used linear drawings of Matisse, Hockney and colour from Kooning’s abstract paintings to draw inspiration for my graduate collection.
The fashion industry is fast becoming one of the most damaging to our planet and people in an ethical sense and I have a developed a fascination into what can be done, small steps or big, to help change this.
Developing a collection in fitting with my brand ‘0405’ photos and memories were used to create linear drawings of my Mothers face and I collaborated to create naturally dyed printed fabric with this design to form the sustainable aspect of the collection.
