I am a highly creative, hard-working individual who is reliable and honest. I embrace challenging tasks and strive to complete everything to the best of my ability. I have completed a sandwich year placement working within the bridal industry, during which time I gained many professional and transferable skills.From the year out I worked for companies such as Emma Beaumont Design in Cheshire, Chester Costume House and also Bridal Haven in Cheshire I have gained many skills in bridal wear and costume. I have also been focusing my work on the skill I learnt on my year out such as making corsets and doing lots of hand beading. I have a real passion for bridal wear and this is something I would like to take forward for my future using both modern and traditional techniques. I am an accurate machinist and creative maker who takes pride in the high quality finish of my garments.

Bridal/ Prom garments

For Final Major Project I collaborated with two different client's making a bespoke wedding and prom dress, My bespoke bridal garment was inspired by nature and Rococo architecture and designed from the concept romance. My bespoke prom dress was inspired by dance and the artist Degas and designed form the concept movement . I have used lot of techniques I learnt on my sandwich year such as basic blocks made to measure, beading, lace and corsetry. It was a challenge doing these garments as you hand to stick to the client's requirements but it was also good to design a collection of my styles too.
