Hi, my name is Charlotte my collection is inspired by escapism, sustainable practices, and contemporary minimalist silhouettes. Nature and the outdoors have become even more vital during the recent pandemic, and it is these factors that have enhanced personal ways of coping during this period of our lives. The focus of my collection was to highlight sustainable or alternative fashion techniques or developments and how it is possible to use existing resources to create something new, fresh and beautiful. Being on an ‘Enterprise’ route throughout my time at university has really allowed me to explore how I can realistically use the practices explored in my collection and turn these into real life solutions and opportunities.
