I completed a Fashion BA (First) at Leeds University with a year in industry working in New York for a young developing menswear and interior brand. I joined RCA Mixed Media and Textiles MA programme with a key interest in fashion and accessories. My main interest at RCA has been exploring digital embroidery and creating innovative new stitch designs. My interests now are to take my designs and embroidery techniques and develop my own commercial brand AKAyerst.
