Fashion Design BA (Hons) graduate from Arts University Bournemouth as of 2019. Currently based in my hometown, Portsmouth. 

Taking a sensitive and considered approach to design, my work reflects on matters which are both personal and integral to my own identity.

My research comes from a broad area encompassing: gender, identity, sexuality, history and art. I am heavily inspired by vintage garments and costume, found photographs, and LGBTQ+ artists.

 

I have always worked largely with a focus on textiles, exploring print, knit and dyes within my work.

With a consciousness of producing sustainably, I source deadstock, remnant and end-of-roll fabrics, to create unique and limited pieces.

My products are both delicate and playful, hoping to inspire the wearer to access all the possibilities of their own identity.
