After achieving my A levels in Art and design and Photography at Hautlieu as well an Extra in Textiles at the Harbour Gallery I gained a place on Art and Design foundation at the competitive London College of Fashion, where I gained a merit award and went on to study at the college on degree level in Womenswear Fashion Design Technology and Pattern cutting. I am currently studying in London on first year of my degree, recently achieving an 80% distinction level for my work.
I have also recently been interning for the company who produce Courtney Love?s clothing line, helping to make the garments in preparation for fashion week and gaining experience within the industry, I was also very privileged to gain entry to London Fashion week as a dresser backstage. In the past I have had my work exhibited in Jersey at The Harbour and Falle Art Galleries, and also had pieces photographed and featured in online magazine, Amour. As you will see from the examples attached of some of the garments I have designed and made, I use a variety
of different mediums, often experimenting with more unconventional ones.
My designs are heavily influenced by Art, Music and Era?s such as Punk and the New Romantics. As a result my style could be described as bold and expressive with a tendency to source unusual fabrics and incorporate Textiles skills into the production of them. I am also very interested in the recycling of old clothing and fabric by customizing and remaking them, I have focused a number of my projects around this idea in the past and have produced entire garments made from recycled products and clothing. My work is strongly influenced by designers such as Hussein Chalayan, Gareth Pugh and Alexander McQueen, and one day aspire to also work as an independent designer with my own brand and line.
