Karisma is available for work

As a product designer specialising in Footwear and Accessory Design, I have gained extensive skills in high street retail footwear design, product development, and trend forecasting. My academic achievements include graduating in MA Design Innovation from De Montfort University with a Distinction and being a finalist for the Drapers Awards 23. I am currently seeking junior positions in design, buying and product development. At present, I have a Graduate Route visa which entitles me to work in the UK until 2025.
