Graduate Collection "Renee" 2017
My Collection “Renee” is a personal tribute to my late grandmother Renee Pollock, an unforgettable woman of influential strength who always radiated a joy of life and care for others. When my grandmother entered a room you always knew she was there, purely because of the amazing presence she brought with her. I kept this in mind while designing this collection
“I'm a women of simple tastes. I’m always satisfied with the best.” -Oscar Wilde (apologies to Oscar Wilde)
I was inspired by my grandmother’s amazing taste, quality, judgment and panache. My collection shows a heightened sense of femininity with edgy strength that commands attention. The sparkling and textural interplay of pink, silver and beading with chic silhouette influence from the Seventies all serve to channel Renee herself. The impact of dress can never be underestimated to tell the story of others' lives and hold memories to learn from.

2016 - Apparel Construction Project
2016 was a year of broadening my skills in sewing and design, from shoes to bags I really wanted my final year to be a challenge. Instead of just making your every day handbag, I took a twist on what used to be an awful childhood memory. Being allergic to cats as a child was my worst nightmare as I love animals, so I designed a bag with a twist.... comedic yet slightly gruesome I think "Fluffy" is the perfect 'pet' for those who want a stand out handbag.
