Emily is available for work


I am a Knitwear Design Graduate. Previously I studied (BA Hons) Fashion Knitwear and Knitted Textiles SW at Nottingham Trent University. During this time I have developed not only my design skills but also my understanding of commercial markets and trends. My graduate collection was sponsored by UPW Hong Kong, and consequently featured in Drapers Magazine as a designer to watch. I am a collaborative worker with the ability to work to a brief, or to manage my time well and work independently. Following on from winning the Fashanne Knitwear Award I have undertaken a placement in Design & NPD at John Smedley. During this time I gained vital experience within the knitwear industry and developed my own design skills. Previously I completed a 9 month placement at Bobble Ltd, where I sold swatches to brands such as DKNY & White Stuff.
