F) COULD YOU PLEASE TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT DO YOU DO/HAVE YOU DONE? : I work as a crossdisciplinary designer between fashion, textiles and materials. I enjoy learning new processes, crafts and techniques from different disciplines and seeing how they can inform each other. After I graduated in fashion designer I was working in the embroidery departments of Diane von Fürstenberg and Alexander McQueen. As I wanted to expand my knowledge I decided to come to London to do the Masters in Material Futures at Central Saint Martins. Here I learnt research driven design and got insight into complete new design fields. Currently I am working on a commission for Nissan and am working for Studio Toogood on some projects.
