I am currently studying for a Masters at Manchester Metropolitan University, researching how to bring upcycled fashion products to mainstream retail, in order to change the way consumers in the UK shop and think about fashion and the environment.
As a fashion industry professional I gained experience in styling and PR before starting a recycled clothing brand, and continuing my freelance styling work, creating high end fashion and lifestyle images for a wide variety of fashion, commercial and editorial clients.
I also run workshops in recycled fashion with Stitched Up sustainable fashion in Manchester.
Previous to this I completed courses at John Moores University and Liverpool Community College in Fashion Design, and in Garment Manufacture, for an advanced knowledge of trend research, pattern cutting, garment manufacture and textiles, with skills directly transferable to starting a fashion industry business.
‘Trashed Couture’ garments are currently available by personally contacting me to discuss an individual and unique piece, made especially for each client.
