Throughout my studies at the University of Leeds I have developed a keen interest in casual menswear focusing on essential menswear items and attention to detail. I am interested in every last detail of a garment and its method of construction, creating unique, wearable pieces. Several other areas of interest to me are sustainability and the role of technology within fashion. For my final collection I have concentrated on the concept of modularity and integrated technology to address these issues. During my placement year I worked for Mother of Pearl and French Connection and I have recently been employed by Abercrombie and Fitch in America.
