My love of fashion stems back to my childhood, I always loved dressing up and was involved in dance shows from a young age, so I always had plenty of costume. I suppose its the freedom to express myself and experiment with different looks I love.
I began with the theme of Teaparites V Superheroes, then expanded my research to subjects such as Art Deco, the 30s, 60s, and pop art.
I wanted to create something that was wearable, but very distinct by using colour and keeping a girly flair. I didn’t want to make it too serious.
Someone who is either creative or who hasn’t let go of their childhood, it is definitely not for everyone.
I’m not sure about it immediately, but eventually I would like to start my own business. For a start after graduation, I will showing my collection in August at ITA2 on the Tall Ship in Glasgow.
