I am a highly motivated first class graduate who is accomplished in both the fashion and costume industries.
I have skills in pattern cutting, sewing and the making and the construction of clothing. I also have a huge interest in the story of stage and screen costume and how these translate on screen. Period dress, dance and circus costume are also areas I am very interested in exploring. I have a special interest in the integration of smart fabrics, electronics and other wearable technologies developed through my final year graduate collection.
Looking to learn and move forward in the costume industry through making and construction, with a view to learn further about wearable technologies for stage a screen where possible.
I am incredibly passionate about these industries, and see how they hold huge potential in the future of combining both fashion and technology. I have a creative and innovative outlook but with a huge interest in problem solving, construction and integration.
