Originally from the West Country I followed my dream of pursuing a career in Fashion Design. Based in London I gained a decade of industry knowledge and experience that ranged from small Boutiques to mainstream mail order. I took a diversion into education, which bought me to Cheltenham – the heart of the glorious Cotswolds that I’d heard so much about; and it is here where I pass on my expertise to the rising talent of the future. I currently am a Lecturer of Fashion & Clothing at Gloucestershire College.
I’ve been quoted, “Learn the rules before you break the rules” many times, and that’s exactly what I hope to bring to CFW. I aim to give pupils, students, young people and new designers a platform to utilise their skills, talents and creativity to produce creations and express their uniqueness in any manner they wish – creating a Spectacle of Fashion that everyone will be talking about.
