BACK IN THE DAYS











Here are some Sketchbook pages form my University days.
These were my working and inspiration pages for my final collection.
A lot of you have asked me what fashion school I went to, what job I have etc.... so I answered a few of the questions below:

I studied a BA in fashion design at the Creative Institute of Art and Design (UK)
Not long after I graduated I got offered a job in New York as a fashion designer and Illustrator.
Now I'm still in New York working as a menswear Graphic designer (while building my mini empire on the side :))

I also wanted to say that I love each and every one your comments and that they do not go unnoticed!
