I enjoy being involved throughout the creation process- from developing the original idea and inspiration through sketches and illustration to creating the pattern that corresponds to the piece and finally constructing it into a fully fledged garment/accessory. I became a freelancer as I love its fluidity! It's also a great way to meet new and interesting people from all over the world and give you an opportunity to have your work seen globally!
Although my BA degree was in womenswear design, I decided to focus on the lingerie, swimwear and accessory design section of the industry. I create technical flats and pattern designs using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and I have working knowledge of InDesign. I also have extensive experience in administrative work and can perform virtual assistant duties to perfection. Additionally, I have written newspaper articles, covering all aspects of entertainment including concerts and festivals.
