A little about me
Born and bred in Birmingham I studied art and fashion at Walsall college before heading to study fashion design at UCA (University of the Creative Arts) Rochester, Kent. I graduated with a 2:1 degree in 2009.
For the last 10 years I have worked diversely throughout the fashion industry gaining skills and expertise across all elements of fashion, ranging from haute couture design studios, to restoration of vintage clothing. Pattern cutting menswear, womenswear and childrenswear, to manufacturing wholesale orders within a factory environment. Also photographic styling, freelance fashion illustration to retail and visual merchandising. I am a multi versatile professional who's main attributes are my creativity, meticulous eye for detail and strive for perfection and high quality.
I'm a veggie/vegan and adore all animals. Show me a picture of a cat and I'll swoon.
I collect vintage wear and accessories.
I'm addicted to watching TV shows such as Game of Thrones and Vikings.
