Swann is available for work

Graduated from UAL, I am currently looking to join a Footwear & Accessory Design team as a graduate footwear designer in Women's, Men or children's luxury.

I have a love of traditional craftsmanship, fashion heritage, and innovative techniques and I possess a strong commercial and consumer awareness. I have the ability to tailor ideas across a range of market levels with the right skills and knowledge of the footwear industry. I am passionate about attention to detail which is evident in my final Graduate collection.

On a personal note I love to push the boundaries of traditional shoemaking in a new, contemporary direction, using a diverse range of classic and modern techniques - from embroidery all the way to 3D printing.


- Showcase of my graduate collection at the London Fashion Week 22

- Cordwainer's Awards Commendation winner 22

- Cordwainers Jimmy Choo Dato Awards finalist 22
- Finalist at the "Salvatore Ferragamo young talents for Sustainable thinking 2019".
- Finalist at the Inditex project 2020
- Finalist at the Drapers Footwear student Awards 2021 and 2022.
-Publication of my design in the Sindroms magazine, Pink edition.
