BA (Hons) Fashion
My name is Aleisha and I’m a womenswear designer from Norwich, Norfolk. I would describe my design aesthetic as fun, feminine and full of character. I am known for my consistent application of colour and print/pattern, married with design concepts that are heavily influenced by historical context and the art of storytelling. My design process uses these concepts to produce deeply thoughtful garment and surface design that aims to stand out.
I design heavily around the questions: “would I wear this?” and “is this comfortable?”. This allows me to dedicate my whole heart to a collection and have no lost belief in what I’m making. I also believe that fashion should be comfortable whilst carrying a certain narrative, which could be sexy, sophisticated, fun, dreamy and so on.
My graduate year has taught me to do everything in my life, creative or not, with a feeling of power and vulnerability.
