GRECIAN HEIGHTS

BIO

The theme of my final collection ‘Grecian Heights’ was ignited half way up to the ascent of the acropolis on the island of Rhodes. The age, structure and textures of the ancient architecture before the clearest blue skies offered subliminal shapes and colours; the exciting start of a design journey for a capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2018. I have replicated my personal interpretation of the culture by printing onto leather and using intricate pleating techniques following the direction of the leg to enhance the feminine form.

 

Completing a summer internship at Dune London reaffirmed my intentions of pursuing a career in ladies footwear and this has been reflected in my final year designs. Proficiency in creating design boards from captivating concepts to develop intricate, innovative uppers and details has certainly been a significant strength. Most importantly, however, manipulating my excellent CAD skills has enabled me to develop commercial designs with my personal charismatic influence.
