I am a 22 year old fashion graduate from Liverpool, recently gaining a first class honours. As a new designer I want to create clinical, clean-cut shapes with bold prints and block colours for women craving distinguished wardrobe staples without the fast fashion trend. I am very inspired by interiors, architecture and everyday surroundings which appeal to my playful character. I am eager to learn the fashion industry and explore my own creativity further.
I am an enthusiastic and skilled designer looking for my next challenge. I have recently achieved a First-class honours degree in Fashion Design from LJMU where I was given the opportunity to explore fashion awareness, develop strong research skills and create original artworks and graphics. My final collection was published in Skinny magazine and a number of newspapers and websites, as well as being shown at Women's enterprise business festival 2014. I have built robust practical skills, mastering CAD, Illustrator and Photoshop to design collections to meet deadlines and project milestones. One of my personal strengths is in trend forecasting and industry developments. As well as garment design I take an active interest in the aesthetic of interior design, graphic design and photography.
