What was your inspiration?

My final collection is a series of digitalised prints, inspired by replicating and abstracting the textures and patterns found within our surroundings of rust and decay. I have researched 90s runway fashion to inspire my prints for interiors-based products and furnishings.

Explain what made you pick Buckinghamshire New University to study?

The facilities in the Red Shed give you the opportunity to truly experiment with a range of materials and processes.

Tell us about your ‘best bits’ at BNU?

The best experience of BNU has been seeing my digital print designs come to life on fabrics!

What have you found most challenging during your studies?

Covid has been very difficult, especially trying to navigate my studies during lockdowns. 

What has been the most surprising part of your course?

The most surprising aspect of the course has been how my interests within textiles has expanded and changed throughout my degree, and how these interests have moulded my career aspirations.

How do you think BNU has prepared you for the world of work?

Live industry projects, guest lectures and professional practice modules have prepared me for the outside world as I now have a better understanding of everything that goes into the role of a textiles designer within the industry.

What would you say to someone thinking of doing their degree at BNU and why?

Go for it! Experiment as much as possible to develop and navigate who you are as a designer.

What’s the dream after Uni?

Become a printed textiles designer.
