During my graduate year at Edinburgh College of Arts, I honed my skills of draping and tailoring. Learning bespoke tailoring techniques and time consuming hand work, in addition to creative draping. I designed organically and intuitively, holding my concept in my head and manipulating fabric based upon my knowledge of techniques and processes. Academically, I explored how fashion is experienced and understood, particularly for those who are visually impaired, which has sparked a design ethos of considering fashion as whole, how it is feels, moves, is presented, and how it’s purpose and process is communicated. Since graduating, I have enjoyed working with, and learning from, a team. Furthermore, I have continued to enjoy learning quickly in a fast paced environments. I pride my self on my attention to detail, my joy in learning, my dedication, passion and perseverance and my ability to support and uplift my colleagues during difficult moments. As a bridal seamstress at Emma Roy, I developed my hand sewing skills in lace and beading, gained a greater understanding of how to work with bridal fabrics  and conducted fittings and alterations. Upon moving to Walker Slater, a tailoring focused tweed specialist, my passion for, and knowledge of, tailoring has only grown. A significant part of my role is creating outfits for clients. Additionally, I have been also able to refine my own style and have a new found appreciation and knowledge of tweed. Both my roles at Emma Roy and Walker Slater have highlighted my excitement and eagerness to continue expanding my knowledge of craftsmanship within the luxury and couture fashion industry.
