About

I am a recent master's graduate in fashion design with a broad industry experience of ten years, from sportswear to runway fashion. With an affinity for garment construction, I am looking for a position where I can contribute with my resourcefulness of making, whether digital, traditional pattern cutting, or draping by material. Being used to working in a high pace and challenging environment, I enjoy working alongside others, and I find that being responsive and generous by sharing ideas and support is crucial to building and delivering a strong collection successfully. Having followed a variety of brand strategies, and creating concepts with manufacturing processes from large to small quantities, I have developed confidence, understanding, and genuine business interest in how to speak to a target audience with my design.
