BIO

For the final year of my degree I decided to pursue the technical route of the course. For my final collection I produced a collection of DD+ latex lingerie for curvier figures. My intention was to provide fuller busted women with latex lingerie options that fitted and supported a fuller bust as well as a conventional bra. To do this I developed a lamination technique which incorporated technology from conventional bra manufacture to provide the support and control that a fuller bust needs. I also utilised various weights of latex in order to provide a shapewear element to the garments.

I used Lectra Modaris heavily throughout the project in order to ensure the accuracy of my patterns, precisely and efficiently alter patterns and also to grade my final patterns to create a full size range.

My collection was inspired by exotic reptile skins and incorporates custom made, patterned sheet latex which was hand poured by Yummy Gummy Sheet Latex.
