About me

Hi, my name is Jasmine. I am of Peruvian heritage and thanks to this I have been exposed to ethnic fashion and textiles from a young age. I have practiced a variety of textile techniques throughout my life and continued this in my academic studies.

At UCLan my proudest achievements have included being the course rep for three years running and continually experimenting to learn more about fashion and techniques – such as manufacturing and pattern cutting, illustration and Cad work and silhouette manipulation.

I have a well-read understanding about trend research and marketing and establishing this knowledge into a range. My time at UCLan has prepared me for the different areas of the fashion industry and my final collection showcases my passion for textile work especially.

My final collection is called Resiliance and shows the all-around techniques and skills I have learnt at UCLan. It's is a womenswear collection exploring the themes of self-protection, comfort, and resistance. I’ve used loose flowing lines, wrapping, layers, and voluminous fabric manipulation, with cocoons of fabric that protect. I created garment silhouettes reflecting the work of Issey Miyake and traditional Japanese clothing. Garments were textured through appliqué work, with hand and digital embroidery to hint at the constant state of attack to replicate bacteria eating away at the protective layers. The collection includes up-cycled sustainable fabrics.
