“My collection is inspired by illustration and artwork. A lot of it is based on mental health, which I’ve done through repair stitches and patch working things together. A lot of my pattern comes from the inkblot test.

“I’m moving to Italy in July to work with Missoni for six months, starting a placement in the menswear department for design. I’m a bit scared, but they’ve provided me with an apartment, which is great!

“My interest in music probably influenced me to do menswear. I used to really like punk music, so I looked into Vivienne Westwood and it kind of sprung from there really.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at AUB, it’s been stressful, but really good!”

Sophie was awarded runner up at the FAD Competition 2017, in collaboration with Missoni.
