"Some were budding designers, some had degrees in product design and some had studied textiles. It's sad how much creative talent is hidden away behind till points, locked away in stockrooms and banished to the graduates' graveyard of British retail!."
Working for Habitat similar to Gok Wan I have made great friends, and met some incredibly talented creative individuals. As the legacy of Habitat across the UK rapidly draws (sadly) to a close it is a new chapter guys lets put our creative brains to valuable use.
My design journey began with Printed Textiles, exploring surface pattern design. Following from this I developed an interest in the concept of textile sustainability and recycling. I have recently completed my MA study exploring how historic textile processes can benefit our future through sustainable design. I am training to be a teacher in Art and Design to share my knowledge and fulfil the concept of living arts. This blog aims to explore what inspires me and to encourage my development as a practioner.
