Minnie Reed
I am a knitwear designer with a passion for sustainable design. Fabric development and excellent technical knit knowledge are key to my work allowing me to develop creative and innovative garments. 'A Home Is Mine' is a practice-based research project, driven by methods to build emotional durability, and therefore longevity, into clothing. This MA project also documents a technical journey, developing a unique methodology for knitted garment design and an understanding of advanced knit technology. The outcomes marry together this conceptual research and deep technical learning. The final garments stand alone as beautiful 2D pieces, but they invite a connection and relationship with the wearer as they become a recognisable garment once on the body. This collection should be used as examples of new ways of thinking, exploring alternative garment making methodologies and challenging the use of knitwear technology.
