Course: BA (Hons) Fashion

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.
