MA Fashion Futures

Graduate student (Merit) of London College of Fashion, studying MA Fashion Futures - a course that questions fashion through the lens of sustainability. Covering environmental, social and cultural aspects of sustainability has allowed me to expand and develop both my academic and practical fashion skills which are translated through my work.

My work is mixed media; using up-cycling, recycling, re-purposing and documentary style film making techniques to express and document my journey.
