I'm a BA (Hons) Fashion Design Graduate from Nottingham Trent University. I have studied design-based subjects throughout my education and have loved sewing, florals and prints since I was a young girl. Over the course of my degree, I have had the opportunity to explore many different disciplines within the fashion industry including, womenswear, menswear, unisex, tailoring, sustainability, social justice and textile design. Allowing me to really explore my creativity and the areas of the industry I am most excited by. After doing volunteer work with the university and several projects about adaptive fashion and feminism the main focus for my design is inclusive, functional womenswear and hyper-feminine prints and aesthetics.
My Social justice work
Something that has become very important to me through my studies at NTU is volunteering for the Student's Union 'Consent is Everthing' program. Created by the student support services sexual violence support team, the program was voted for by students to help de-stigmatise and better educate sexual violence awareness. I decided to start this program after the pandemic returning to the nightlife environment during a scary period for women's safety. After attending the 'Girls Night In' event in February 2022 I decided I wanted to be part of this amazing program and received the 6-hour training course required to be a facilitator. I have now been doing the program for over a year and received over 13 hours of training on sexual violence support and effective activism presentation. I wrote a blog post for the Healthy NTU blog and my dissertation explored sexual politics in women's fashion where I investigate the reasons behind victim blaming through clothing.
