What is the single most interesting brief you’ve worked on during your career?
The work I do now with my ethical swimwear company has been the most challenging for me, but also the most rewarding. Like the CCA brief I started with an open opportunity, but also one that was almost impossible because there were so many different ways I could build it.
Who has been your biggest influence?
I was young and searching for what I wanted to do in life, and on a whim took an evening course on design and pattern cutting. During school I was never great at fine art and didn’t have much encouragement to go into a creative field, but I had always enjoyed making clothes as a hobby even though I believed I wasn’t good enough to make it into a career. The tutor at the evening class was a lady called Christina Barry, and she completely changed my life by telling me that I was good enough to pursue fashion design. This was something I had never had anyone tell me before, and it gave me the confidence to push myself and make my passion a reality. Although she may not be a big design influence, she definitely had the biggest influence on my life.
