I grew up in a small town on the outskirts of Birmingham. In 2012 I moved to London to study a foundation in Art and Design at Camberwell College of Art. I then went on to do a BA in Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear at London College of Fashion. This year I presented my final major project, ‘Art Body’, a collection of six looks, at the LCF BA16 catwalk presentation. In collaboration with Yumi Kim, a fashion textiles print designer, we created a playful collection which made use of tactile fabrics such as latex, PVC, suede and faux fur.
