“Mine is a plus size collection, I graded them up to size 16/18. It’s based on Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes. Women grow up thinking they need to be a princess. I wrote a little children’s book, and the character found out that she can be a princess regardless of her size.
I love doing freehand machine embroidery. I did my sketches onto paper, and then embroidered them onto the clothes. Each outfit tells a story, such as Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. There’s some bigger pieces, a massive coat I did has all the story on.
I’ve really enjoyed my time, but it’s really hard work. I’m one of the first people to really go for plus size for my final collection, so we had to buy a new mannequin. She’s even got a name! I had to get my own patterns and graded everything up myself.
Everything I’m planning on doing next is plus size. I’ve got an internship with One One Three and have an interview today and tomorrow.”
