About me

I’m a fashion design student with a love for creativity and all things fashion! During my degree I have discovered what I value and where I want to be within the fashion industry. I am very passionate about making the fashion industry environmentally friendly and have focused on that within my final year and hopefully will be able to develop and follow this path in the future.

My collection is called ‘Hiraeth’, which is a Welsh phrase used to describe a homesickness, a deep yearning to be back in Wales. This phrase is meaningful to my collection because it was this feeling that inspired me. The Welsh scenery plays a strong role in my work, all my textiles are inspired by the mountain scenery, using denim treatments and manipulations to recreate my home. I wanted my love for the planet to show through all elements of my collection, so I made it mainly repurposed or upcycled denim, the result is a directional ‘one-off’ collection of garments.
