I am a third year student studying Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University. Due to the broad nature of my course i have explored a range of textile based proccesses including felting, lasercutting, print and pattern cutting.
For my final project i have specialised in print design and screen printing to create fashion garments which explore the relationship between colour and shape on a reversible, transparent garment. I will produce a range of reversible garments, enhancing the garments longevity and adaptability due to the different colour and shape compositions that will appear on either side if the garment. As a result my garments will be sustainable as they will reduce the number of garments you need through adaptability. Sustainability and colour play a key role in my work.

I would very much appreciate your help. I am studying for an MA in Marketing at Kingston Business School under the supervision of Professor Robert East. We are conducting research about Fairtrade goods and ethical fashion clothes, and ask you to complete the enclosed short questionnaire. I am also offering a £50 shopping gift voucher to the lucky prize draw winner!!!!
I really need to find social responsible persons who buy ethical fashion clothes. Any help in distributing my link among ethically concerned people will be very valuable.
