My design practice is closely centred on the three dimensional and designing through making. I take an intuitive bricolage approach, embracing diverse materials. Having previously worked in fast-fashion frameworks, I now prefer to make one-off pieces – many of the garments I make are constructed without a pattern, piecing off-cuts together bit by bit. I constantly collect textile fragments, playing with juxtapositions of textures, prints, taste, value and everyday narratives.
