About me / About business or organisation:
I am creative, passionate and dedicated to ethical and environmental issues. I have studied Masters level Corporate Environmental Governance at the University of Hong Kong and am currently undertaking an MSc degree at a world renowned International college for Ecology and Sustainability in the UK. I lived in Hong Kong for 5years but have now relocated back to England. I am interested in peoples perception of and relationship with Nature, with Sustainability and with clothing. I have personally studied many different approaches to 'Sustainable' design but have been have so far been left unsatisfied. I would like to develop an approach to design that starts with a systemic analysis of natural flow and human needs at a local level; blurring the boundary between consumer and producer, challenging the mainstream model of a globalised approach to manufacturing and aesthetics.
