BA (Hons) Fashion
I am a recent Fashion graduate with a specialism in womenswear and sustainable textiles. My collection ‘Lost at Sea’ aims to highlight the importance of recycling and repurposing unusual materials. Initially inspired by the litter on my local beaches and Haenyeo divers, my research grew to looking at female divers around the world and celebrating their skill.
From using bright, joyful colours, I hope that this project proves that rubbish can be beautiful. The recycled materials represent the plastic and fishing equipment in our oceans. I have used vegetable nets and second-hand rope to weave my own fabrics. The same materials have been applied in different ways across my collection.
