Academic Course Leader in Fashion Design

Art and Design

It is very important to me that our students have a role in contributing to the developing knowledge, technology, theories and practice of fashion design through dynamic teaching experiences and collaborative learning.

Biography

My experience of working in a demanding and fast paced industry as a designer and design manager for Courtaulds and Bairdwear has enabled me to develop a wide range of specialist skills and relevant subject knowledge to share with my students to support and develop their skills and understanding of this dynamic subject area. My interest and research in collaborative teaching and learning and sustainable and ethical design is critical to her teaching practice.There are real challenges ahead for fashion students who want to make an impact within an industry that is currently unsustainable.
