I N T R O D U C T I O N

I grew up in a small town on the outskirts of Birmingham. In 2012 I moved to London to study a foundation in Art and Design at Camberwell College of Art. I then went on to do a BA in Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear at London College of Fashion. This year I presented my final major project, a collection of six looks, at the LCF BA16 catwalk presentation. In collaboration with Yumi Kim, a fashion textiles print designer, we created a playful collection which made use of tactile fabrics such as latex, PVC, suede and faux fur.

'Art Body', my final piece of work, is a narrative which celebrates overlooked female artists and challenges the male gaze. The collection seeks to renegotiate representations of the female body in art and is less concerned with typical conventions of clothing and wearability. I wanted the pieces in my collection to be more like soft sculptures for the body which translated itself into surreal shapes and oversized proportions. Almost as if the body was to deflate.
