Flett Bertram

MA work

I am a textile designer specialising in fabric development for use within the context of contemporary luxury fashion. I work across the disciplines of stitch, print, fabric construction and manipulation.

During my time at the RCA, I have been driven to challenge the perception of embellishment, aiming to create innovative fabrics that maintain a sense of  traditional craftsmanship. 

Upon graduation, I seek to work alongside fashion designers and therefore welcome collaborations.
