Hi! Thank you for your friend request and kind comments about my work! Those garments were the culmination of my final year project on sustainable design. It was a capsule collection designed for longevity of aesthetic value by clean urban inspired design. Could you tell me more about your blog? It would be really interesting to be featured!
Have a great day, Emily

Hi Helen,
I am very interested in your work and your vast experience is fascinating. Having recently completed a degree and now entering into the fashion industry i feel somewhat disillusioned by the negative side. Therefore I am adamant that my path will be an ethical one. I too hoard all sorts from textiles to vintage buttons and see myself as a designer maker, this is what i am working towards. Any advise you can offer me would be greatly appreciated likewise if there is anything I can help you with in your quest please feel free to contact me. I have sent you a friend request. Regards, Emma
