BIO

An aspiring contour designer. A free spirit. A creative. A dreamer. The World is a backdrop to my fashion shoot and my passion lies within the intimate apparel sector. 

    My design aesthetic is bohemian, delicate and youthful whilst considering the trends and current market. I look towards innovation and what the future of lingerie could and can be. This is demonstrated through my final collection in which I grew my own fabric, created with green tea, sugar, vinegar and love cultures. When dried this created a leather like material. I laser cut it to transform it into the lace, in which I can see potential for the future.

    Other skills I have acquired over my time spent at De Montfort, include experimenting with a variety of mediums to explore primary resources, being adept in Adobe programs such as Illustrator and Photoshop to create excellent CAD flats and illustrations, technical developments in pattern drafting and creating technical files, design development and meticulous construction skills.
