I am an imaginative Fashion Designer whose work sits in the hybrid space across the three dimensional design landscape
In 2010 I completed my MA at Kingston University.
When designing I take inspiration from abstract images and forms, looking at the shapes within these to inform my garment shapes and silhouettes.
Looking at the interrelation and interplay between flat and 3D structural shapes and forms with the body central, within the process of creation new silhouettes emerge and form counter forms that arise through human interaction and engagement.
I have an eye for originality and innovation, and strive to achieve this within my work, creating unusual pieces, with bold silhouettes and forms.
With a strong focus on the concept of multifunctional and interchangeable clothing which is a running theme throughout my work. To me it is as much about process as it is about product, recently I have been looking in depth at the generative series, at how we assemble, create, perform and transform as an infinite and continuous series in itself.
Recently I was lucky enough to have one of my pieces used in a music video, it was for a track by electronic DJ Kryder with lyrics by Bo Bruce. My good friend and design buddy, Camille Walala got me involved as she was doing the graphics and thought my MA collection Modu_gram would fit perfectly in their theme, so they used my Tetra piece!!

I think it looks awesome, it is amazing to be behind the scenes on something like this and then see the finished article. Here are some of my favourite stills too >>
I was luckily enough to sell my jewellery as part of The Secret Emporium at Bestival this Summer. I had the BEST time, met loads of lovely people and gained lots of new customers!! Here's some pics of my stall and the fabulous Emporium Tent! Li x
