A year and a half ago I left my job to re-train as a womenswear designer. In London I focused on pattern cutting and construction – shying away from design as I had never learned to draw (well, not well anyway!). When I moved to Dubai and joined the french fashion school, ESMOD, I decided it was time to face my fears…
I took the 3-month fashion workshop and worked on creating mood boods, colour palettes, fabric ranges….and fashion drawings. At the end of those 3 months I now have the beginnings of a fashion portfolio.
My collection is Spring/Summer 2011 and based on the trend “Elitist Elegance” – which has middle eastern and decadent elements.
Below are my mood board and final 6 designs – let me know what you think!
