About MeI produce innovative handmade beautiful tactile pieces of work. Using traditional textile techniques and vintage aesthetics I inject contemporary technology producing innovative futuristic pieces that ultimately creates an art and fashion crossover. My work covers a number of genres; costume, editorials, gallery installations and commercial.
Check my facebook page out Tulle and Candyfloss Textile Design for more images of my work.
My latest work has been a commission of 6 3D embroidered headpieces for the X Factor Tour 2013.
Always looking for new collaborations to create new exciting editorial shoots with everyone whom is part of that team i.e. photographers, stylists, MUA's, Models.
I do not particularly lean towards one technique, but enjoy and thrive on working with mixed media, which includes embroidery, fabric manipulations & digital print. Techniques include devore, quilting, embroidery, fabric manipulation and embellishment to produce couture designs. I can produce 3D headpieces to unique printed textiles for garments. Basically your wish is my command !
I like to experiment, develop and push my samples, which is an important part of my design process, mixing traditional techniques with new ones. I have a passion for all things vintage and wherever possible I try to incorporate this into my work by embellishing with vintage items, whether that be lace or buttons.
