I am a womenswear designer and pattern cutter. I often draw inspiration from my strong emotional connection to the natural world and the experiences I have within it. My design work is focussed on colour, fabric and texture and my technical work is focussed on precision and quality.
The Greenhouse, my graduate collection, was inspired by the botanical illustration of Katie Scott and the photography of Karl Blossfeldt, inspiring my silhouettes through collaging and draping on the stand as well as being the basis for my colour palette. I’ve taken an experimental approach to geometric pattern cutting and exploring drape and fabric. Working with velvets, shirting cotton and faux fur have given my collection a multi-dimensional feel.
