I am a Fashion/Textiles Design graduate with a first class degree. After successfully completing an apprenticeship as a womens tailor in Munich, Germany, I moved to Bristol, England to study Fashion/Textiles Design at UWE. After gaining some recent industry experience in the last year, I have now relocated to London.Read More...
My inspiration was German artist Franz-Xaver Messerschmidt for the knit an print, the Amish for colours and fabrics and WW1 injuries and masks for the shapes and volume in the knitdesign. There was a big emphasis on innovation and craftsmanship.
For my photoshoot I was able to work with photographer Isabella Sporle against the beautiful backdrop of Hampstead Heath.
The pattern of the cardigan was achieved through the use of a punchcard which derived from the sculptures of German artist Franz-Xaver Messerschmidt. I also designed and produced enamel buttons that were used throughout my whole collection.
We were 56 collections at our graduate show in Bristol from which 12 were selected to represent the University of the West of England during the Graduate Fashion Week. It was a great and emotional achievement for me. My collection was very well received and nominated for the Innovative Knitwear Award. It was featured on numerous blogs as well as in the art and fashion magazine FAKE.
