PLEASE NOTE | I am currently limiting/stopping lending garments out for shoots. I have had the chance to work with a lot of amazing people on here, but feel like I have enough different images of this one collection. If however you feel you have something completely different that will benefit my portfolio, please feel free to contact me with as many details as possible. Please do not be offended if I turn down working with you.
I am a lingerie/corsetry designer graduate from De Montfort University's Contour Fashion course. I am currently based in Loughborough but can easily get to surrounding areas that a just a short train journey away. (These include: Leicester, Nottingham, Birmingham and Derby. Please ask for other locations)
****I am interested in gaining more industry experience. If you are a company and are interested in us working together please feel free to send me a message.****
All the garments pictured here are designed; pattern cut and sewn by myself. In addition I have hand pleated and corded both the silk satin and duchess satin on the knickers, corsets and bras.
I have experience in pattern cutting and making; a range of bras, swimwear, sportswear, corsetry and nightwear as well as some outerwear. I have completed external client projects for Ballet, Triumph International and Gilly Hicks and have also been fortunate enough to complete a 3 month placement with Eternal Spirits.
I like my fashion to be bizarre, quirky and large. I am very interested in alternative clothing and anything made out of unusual fabrics. Having previously made lingerie from circuit boards and cassette tapes, I believe that any type of material can be utilized in fashion. I am currently looking to explore latex fabric to use in my designs and to create some individual and one off pieces.
****I am looking to collaborate with models, stylists and photographers to create unusual and interesting shoots.****
****I am willing to lend out garments if the project will benefit my portfolio. Please don't be offended if I choose not to lend pieces out. I prefer to travel with my garments however will consider other options, again if the project is right. Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss options. ALSO NOTE: All the garments pictured here are a size 10/12 and 34B.****
****If anybody is interested in commissioning a garment or outfit, then get in touch with details and we can further discuss your requirements.****
