My main research interests in the fashion design process are to propose effective use of information and decision making for design and creativity. My current research projects are examining the concept of remanufacturing fashion and mechanisms to divert textiles from landfill. I am specially interested in concepts that bring environment, ethics and development together in one.
Career history / Company history:
I trained as a fashion designer and got my PhD which examined the fashion design process across market levels in the UK women's wear sector, in 2000 from the University of Salford. I joined UMIST (now part of UoM) in 2000 and was Programme Director for the BSc (Hons) Fashion and Textile Retailing. I transferred to the University of Hudderfield in April 2010 to take up the role of Subject leader (textiles) where i manage four textiles programme leaders and their teams. I teach fashion retail and management from undergraduate to PhD and have taught design management internationally at various institutes, including the UPC at Terrassa in Spain, the TEI at Pireus in Greece and Biella, Italy. I have been advisor and external examiner to several academic programmes, the Creative Industries Development Services/Manchester City Council at and consulted for Tanzania Gatsby Trust (of Sainsbury's Charitable Foundation) and for Oakdene Hollins (for a project examining end of life management of corporate wear for DEFRA).
