In 2010 I completed a Bachelor of Design Honors degree from Massey University, in Wellington, New Zealand Afterwards I lived in Melbourne Australia for 2 years and completed a few one off jobs and internships in fashion before I ventured to London to travel and gain new life experiences.
Whilst working full time in London I was able to get London fashion experience within two internships, working with designers Lulu Liu and Sini Moilanen. My involvement in both studios gave me a great insight into the development and productions of each label, which in turn was showcased in fashion shows that I was lucky enough to assist.
Both internships were very different from each other but together gave me valued experience in London.
During 4 months with Lulu Liu, I assisted Lulu and her design team with sample development, alterations, pattern cutting, machine sewing and hand sewing couture garments in preparations for London Fashion Week in September 2014.
My 5 months internship in 2013 with Sini Moilanen is where I worked in her studio for her labels Tramp In Disguise and Miss Galavant. I gained a lot of experience working close with Sini and assisting with trend research, illustrations, pattern drafting, photo shoots and assisted her and stylist Emma Pullbrook in Zagreb Fashion Week for her main line - Tramp In Disguise.
Ideally I would like to get into the fashion industry and expand my skills and opportunity.
