As well as my online shop, below are examples of the services I provide. Please get in touch for further details.
I have over 12 years experience working in the Fashion Industry which had given me the ability to design across multiple categories (inc. Plus size), fabrics (woven, jersey, knit and denim), as well as seeing through the entire process from research, design, sampling, fitting, production, styling, photoshoots and into the mass-market.
Sourcing / Ghost Designer / Product development / Industry standard hand technical drawings / Full specification packs ready for Production / Knowledge working with suppliers in the UK, Turkey, Greece, India and China / Trend forecasting – establishing key trends, colours, print, shape, detail and themes / Moodboards for trend and creative direction / conceptual / brand image / customer profiles / Embellishment artwork design / Styling
Whilst growing up, my mother would always repair torn clothing and amend them to fit their purpose. Clothing would rarely go to waste. This heavily influenced me with ‘upcycling’ and after years and years of collecting Vintage (because I loved the idea I owned a rare piece of fashion and/or I wanted to repair/upcycle it), I started to upcycle them, for myself and to offer to others.

Since November 2016, I have been involved with the University of Westminster’s CES Mentoring Scheme. This scheme offers past graduates the opportunity to become a Mentor to an existing student at the University. Mentors and Mentees are placed together according to their Industry/Degree. I decided to take on this role because having been a student myself, I clearly remembered thinking how great it would have been to have someone who was already working in the Industry to discuss my ideas and for general guidance and support.
Mentoring students from the University of Westminster by providing guidance and support when necessary and helping them make the transition from student to professional / Open to giving advice to other students, looking to enter the Fashion Industry, particularly Design.
