The dream of a career in fashion or textiles stems as far back as a small child playing "fashion designers" with friends, to completing a Foundation Degree in Art & Design (Textiles) at a later age. They say your "calling" is the job you said you would do when you were a child, for me it was always "a fashion designer". I'm not sure why I always used to say that, I think growing up with a Mother who sews, knits & makes things must have somewhat of an influence. Despite completing a higher education Art & Design course, I did'nt pursue this and went to have a career in the beauty industry & then law!
Whilst I would by no means call myself a fashion designer, indeed I am now doing a job/running a business that I dreamt of as a child.
In 2016 my son was born and I began buying and selling clothing online alongside running a beauty business as a means of working from home. In May 2018 I took the clothing business more seriously and wanted to improve the quality of the items therefore I purchased a printing kit and began creating and printing my own designs.
The business has evolved and adapted and I now produce embroidered & embellished garments as well as sourcing pre-loved and vintage pieces.
