Lauren Natasha Eastwood-Roberts

I go from house to house trying to find somewhere I can create bespoke garments i.e dresses / trousers / jackets t-shirts as well as customizing clothing. I love singing / listening to music and getting out in the world to grab new opportunities. / My ambition is to be part of the music and design industry. Currently I'm photographing bands at various venues round north Wales and customizing my own clothing with fabric paint / buttons ect / My aim is to be become a business woman specializing in the creative industry

introduction

Fashion Designer+Mixed Media artist+Photographer Hey my name is Lauren Natasha Eastwood-Roberts and I am an independent artist/designer. I love to explore anything I can get my hands on and I am known to not turn my nose up at anything. My interests include tattoos, piercings and exploring my wildest thoughts. I love to use unusual material when designing i.e. cleaning products, nappies, sanitary towels. I thrive on using the unusual materials and making garments so they look unrecognizable to what they actually are made out of. My desire is to be liberated by other people’s fetishes and dreams by not being afraid of what others might think of my own fetishes and dreams. I am inspired by surrealist artists/film makers such as George Melies and Rene Magritte. My goal is to create bespoke dresses and garments for theatre, drag queens, transgender and burlesque. I strive to be the best I can be and create the most extraordinary garments I can make with these hands.

Hi there, my name is Lauren Natasha Eastwood-Roberts i'm 19 and from North Wales. I am currently building a business called LNER Design, while preparing for University at Manchester Metapolitan University for BA Fashion. In the next few months I will be preparing for university but i will be blogging on here about my experience with running my own business and my daily experiences
