Graduate Fashion Week: JUNE 2019
I was selected by a panel of judges to showcase my final collection, The Farming People, at GFW an incredible event bringing all the graduate talent across the country together. Here I was scouted by Fashion Crossover for their Graduate Talent Programme & also made some great connections within the industry.
'1883' Editorial Cover: In November 2019, one of my collection pieces was worn by DJ LOVE from Japanese band, End of the World. Which had a 3 page feature & made the cover of 1883 Magazine.
London Fashion Week: I was 1 of 4 graduates chosen to showcase my graduate collection again in February 2020 this time at London Fashion Week as part of ‘GFW Presents’. Another amazing experience, meeting so many incredible creators & also meeting Nina Vanvolkinburg, founder of RETURE which I joined in Nov 2020.
NHS Washbags: During the pandemic I spend 3 months making washbags for healthcare workers which I distributed locally to hospitals, care homes & to other other keys workers to support them & their hardwork throughout the pandemic.
