Graduating from De Montfort University in 2012 I have worked for the last 2 years at an independent luxury atelier and have become responsible for all embellishment within the bespoke and couture bridal services. My other responsibilities have included liaising with potential and existing clients, working directly with the designer on bridal collections and undertaking preparation and design of working samples for client approval.
A real highlight of working at the company was when it won “Best Wedding Newcomer” in the Perfect Wedding Awards 2014. During the time I have worked there we were shown in multiple magazines and websites including Brides, Stylist and ELLE wedding magazine.
During my final year at university I specialised in Cornely machine embroidery as well as hand embellishment. I spent this time developing lace fabrics that could be used within the contemporary market. Other skills that I have become proficient in are Photoshop, WordPress and domestic, industrial and Irish sewing machines.
