BA (Hons) Fashion
I am a fashion designer specialising in drape, bright colours and experimental silhouettes that push creative design and pattern cutting boundaries. My work takes inspiration from personal experiences, storytelling and technical creativity. I have a strong focus on sustainability and it is an important factor within my designs.
My collection OVERBOARD explores my Grandad’s life and love for sailing around the world. This is a personal collection, researching my grandfather’s joy for life, memories and passion for sailing. My collection focuses on sustainability, I focused on combining sailing and fishing to create a sustainable fashion solution; 90% of my materials are sustainable utilising offcuts, deadstock fabrics, old broken boat sails, fishing nettings and rope. I have explored traditional sailor/nautical/fishing garments and combined it with the influence of the silhouettes from boat sails and the lines from rope.
