BIO

Drapery and creating organic silhouettes have always been an interest to me. I recognise that draping dates back with experts such as Madeleine Vionnet and her Bias cut techniques on the body through to modern pattern cutters such as Julian Roberts. I have previously experimented with different fabrics manipulating them on the stand. In my final major project I have carried on experimenting with different fabrics, stretch to woven, seeing how this manipulates the drape but also seeing how the body manipulates the fabrics too with shape and movement. I have always been keen on how the engineering of the body works.
