I am a final year fashion design student. In my design practice, I explore aspects of functionality through innovative materials and processes. I have a keen interest in the outdoors and exploring new and innovative technologies in both the fashion and design worlds. Due to this interest, I have incorporated aspects of functionality within my own garments and collection through the garments I design, materials I use or new innovative processes. During my time studying fashion design, I have been able to push myself as both an individual and a designer. While studying I have had the opportunity to develop my skills through innovative pattern cutting and garment manufacture. Developing these skills has allowed me to produce my own innovative collections that incorporate aspects of the outdoors and functionality. After graduating I aspire to continue to push myself as a designer, further developing my skills and knowledge within the fashion industry.
