Portfolio website

I am an enthusiastic and confident, MA graduate with a vast amount of knowledge about a variety fashion related skills including creative pattern cutting, styling, sewing skills and creative direction and retail. With a true passion for fashion diversity and sustainability, I strive to increase the conversations about petite luxury fashion as this is a neglected area within the industry. Size-A is the passion project turned into a personal brand during the completion of a masters degree, it is a luxury petite womenswear brand which offers adjustable waistlines and hemlines that allows all petite women the availability of clothes that will fit directly off the hanger. Collaborations to progress this conversation are extremely important to the integrity of the current and future work of Size-A.
