Heather Dagnall
I am a final year BA (Hons) Fashion Design student. My final major project looks at exploring the issue of climate change and the future of our planet. Being passionate about this issue encourages me to ensure that my collection was made with sustainable and responsible fabrics by upcycling deadstock fabric and using "waste" textiles and trims. With the fashion industry being one of the top polluting industries, and as a keen individual wanting to work within fashion design, it is important for me to instill my knowledge about sustainable practice into my future career and make a change in the industry. One of the projects I enjoyed participating in at my time at NTU was the 'Emmanuel House Project'. This brief required a garment to be produced solely from waste textiles and would be given to Nottingham's Homeless community. My future aspirations are to work for an established fashion brand that is sustainable such as Stella McCartney as a designer or pattern cutter.
