    cashmere knitwear


Inspired by the works and writings of New York artist Richard Serra, the collection examines the idea of 'process' as artistic expression. By eliminating the concept of a preconceived end, work is directed by the nature of the material and its interaction within a space. Through examining Serra's use of form, proportions and the nature of the material, the collection expresses the minimal essence of the knitted structure and the material as a flat plane.

    MA Fashion Womenswear, 2015



  • My work is often inspired by modern concepts in art, as well as incorporating ideas from a broad spectrum of interests, such as history, philosophy or innovations in science and technology. As a knitwear designer, I have a strong focus on texture and detail and utilise the creative process of manufacturing the fabrics I work with. I am particularly interested in the basic elements of knitted structures, and how they can be interpreted in a modern and innovative way, creating strong, yet understated knitwear pieces.
