About me & my work:

I work as a sustainability strategist and trainer for fashion brands and organisations, helping them transition towards a sustainable supply chain; purpose-driven strategy and sustainable product offer.

I began my journey as a printed textile design student in London, over 12 years ago. After learning first-hand about the damaging impacts of textile print and dye processes (and writing my dissertation on 'The True Costs of Fashion'!) I am now committed to finding creative solutions to support a sustainable and resilient fashion industry.

The fashion industry is currently undergoing a transition towards a 21st century world where textile/garment manufacturing is closed-loop and low-impact; consumers demand transparency and values; and the people who work in the supply chain are treated fairly and equally. My role is to act as a steward and facilitator for companies and individuals on this exciting journey.

I have worked with brands including H & M (Sweden) and VF. Corporation (US) on training design teams to use sustainability thinking; I teach design students on the skills and methods we need for this new fashion future; and I am finishing up a PhD in sustainable fashion/textiles funded by MISTRA Future Fashion (Sweden).
