I am a 2nd Year practice based PhD student supported by a cross college network at the University of the Arts, London : The Textile Futures Research Group & Consultancy
I was awarded the Neal's Yard Remedies PhD Studentship for Research in Textiles
Research Title: Considerate Clothing
This PhD research aims to re-think traditional fashion design methods by seeking opportunities for designer/consumer collaboration.
A series of co-design workshops will be used to explore fashion concepts allowing the consumer to become a partner in the design process adding value and an emotional connection with the end outputs to promote a more sustainable relationship to clothing.
The design of an online digital platform will evolve parallel to the workshops to network users globally and present further opportunities to share ideas and expertise.
Career history / Company history:
I studied constructed Textile Design for fashion followed by a Master's of Design (with distinction)
Through my practice based PhD research I do a series of talks to open to students, tutors, researcher's and practitioners. I also design and facilitate fashion/ design workshops exploring co-design concepts.
My name is Kyosun, Shim and a current MSc Marketing student from the University of Bath.

Hello there Jen,
I have been working with natural fibres in Nepal for a long time now and can supply you with fibre, yarns, textiles, as well as finished goods. Please have a look at www.heavenhemp.co.uk and www.wildweaves.co.uk to get an idea of what we do. I work with hemp, nettle, cactus, banana, bamboo . I also have a small workshop where we make bags, clothing and rugs from natural fibres. Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
