BIO

Having recently finished my Final Major Project, I will be graduating this summer and I am currently looking for new and exciting opportunities in the intimate apparel industry. I am a hardworking, creative, and motivated individual and have developed many skills 
whilst at University and on my placements including designing garments, market research, illustration, pattern cutting, PDM packs, print development, sampling, sewing and CAD- Lectra Modaris, Photoshop, Illustrator and In Design.

I love designing my own prints from research and sketchbook work. My final collection took inspiration from the 1920s and the Great Gatsby. All my finished pieces included my own print which I designed using a combination of my sketchbook work and own photographs which I then digitally printed onto satin. 

I have participated in projects for external clients. I was given a week to design, pattern cut and construct a piece using fabrics provided by Boos Textiles Elastics. This was shown at the trade show Interfilere in Paris. I also collaborated with a local hair salon to produce a corseted outfit for a model which was shown at the regional finals of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards.
