About me

I am northern based fashion design graduate who specialises in texture through textiles and fabric manipulation. My research focuses on the importance of size-inclusivity and sustainably made garments. My aim is as a designer is to celebrate diversity and embrace all body shapes. Being a female fashion designer I wanted to focus on the insecurities in which women face daily. Mainly due to social media. The pressure we put on our selves to be the image of perfection, when life is anything but that.

My collection is called ‘Liberté de la Féminité’ meaning femininity freedom. Empowering women to feel free in their skin and body positive. Focusing on the female form and features. I want to embrace skin with sheer and stretch fabrics to focus on the feminine form. Whilst looking at textures that replicate skin. Focusing on insecurities and features women usually hide and embracing them. Empowered women, empower women, so here’s to owning our own female form.
