I began studying a combined Arts course at Nene College Northampton, U.K in 1991.
My passions were evidently Fashion, Photography, Architecture,Painting and Sculpture.
However since many of my projects while studying were inspired through fashion and garment creation, (especially when working in sculpture) I later decided to apply my creativity into fashion design.
Whilst studying I took several part -time jobs to fund my studies working in stores such as “Vivienne Westwood”, “Jean-Paul Gaultier” and lastly for the Company “Diesel” , a company which had been inspiring me a lot through their powerful controversial advertising campaigns and which had a large impact on my views on the marketing of fashion brands.
I graduated from Central Saint Martins London in 1996 (with a BA Hon's Degree in womenswear) and began a internship with Copperwheat Blundel.
Shortly after this internship I was approached to work in Paris for one of my most influential designers, Thierry Mugler, and so in 1997 moved to Paris to work as part of the design team, where I worked on both RTW and Haute Couture runway shows.
Later I went to work as Head designer at the Leather house “JITROIS”, where I found a fabric that could be manipulated in a way like sculpting, and found a position that fulfilled my passions together.
I worked in harmony with this house for several years ,where finding new ways to manipulate leather in garments was always a challenge but bound my passion for art and fashion together sublimely.
To enable myself to gain more commercial experience and sense of commercial business I later took on the new challenge of working for a North American retailer in Montreal,where I was taught a new set of skill's and began to approach fashion from a different perspective and of which gave me an appetite for new ambitions.
Currently I am now living and working in Hong Kong where I embarked on a new position as a Product and Design Development managerfor a manufacturing company - heading the men's department in Denim and woven's.
