Anna's bag designs are created using fair trade organic cotton as well as fair trade organic tweed from Ardalanish (Isle of Man weavers).
Gold is a dominant colour in the designs as it questions the issue that people are fooled by the luxury of fancy clothes when often, people and areas of the environment may have suffered to produce them.
When researching her project, Anna was able to source a variety of fabrics that were ethical and environmentally friendly while still demonstrating key characteristics of a couture fabric. She gained sponsorship for her final collection in the form of organic cream herringbone tweed by visiting Ardalanish - Isle of Mull weavers. To enhance the already beautiful fabric, reclaimed antique trim was added.
Having incorporated ethical and environmental issues into the business plan, she intends to put these into practice after her studies.
