Serendipity

BIO

Fashion designer focused on Womenswear. Enjoys using varied techniques including textiles, print, embroidery and embellishments. A keen fashion illustrator with skills in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. My final major project was based on 'Serendipity', a fortunate happenstance.  This collections inspiration came from clumsy everyday actions, such as spilling a drink and scribbled noting’s of importance yet illegible to others. Through this I have created a clean collection that has been spilled upon with colour, print and embellishments, to reflect a happy accident. To enhance this theme I chose to work with materials that once formed cannot be replicated making each piece unique and creating their own form. A happy accident once created is hard to reproduce which led me to collaborating with a design craft student, specialising in glass, Alice Heaton. Through this my collection includes conceptual glass accessories mixed with wearable luxury garments.
