    Fashion Womenswear, 2012–2014

  • My research 'Constructing a Fashion Narrative in a Contemporary Context' seeks to examine a visual and literary language of fashion practice that reconciles the tacit dialogues embodied within a knowing knowledge of practice; an archaeology of a critical gaze is argued, as a narrative of seeing emerges of a telling of a knowing of a doing of practice in the curated context of a dialogic methodology.

    She has a particular interest in fashion forecasting and trend prediction and remains a practicing designer in the design and sample development of leather handbags and fashion accessories. Suzie has spent the last 20 years of her professional career as an academic at Southampton Solent University (SSU), being Head of the School of Design for eight years and currently heads the School of Fashion.
