I started learning sewing at seven years old from my mum, who worked in couture, and drawing from my grandad, who was an artist. I then got into bespoke dressmaking class with grown-ups at 11 (I was the youngest student!), starting a professional career in fashion design, graduating in 1992 (Madrid) and 2000 (Manchester).

I hold two BA (Hons), one in industrialised fashion design and pattern cutting and another in fashion design with styling. I have had my own fashion company and fashion brand of my own name since the early 90s and I have released numerous collections from vintage styles to streetwear and couture, some for my company and others for other companies.

I have also taught fashion design BA (Hons) at Donghua University in Shanghai (PR China) for three years full time, but I missed designing and making so I decided to only teach occasionally now, so I can mainly create, but I have since taught workshops in anything fashion design related, from sewing to dressmaking, pattern cutting and fashion upcycling. I have taught and tutored thousands of students that have successfully accomplished a career in fashion and many who just wanted to learn to make their own clothes.

I have a lovely and quirky studio in Manchester's Northern Quarter where I create lovely bespoke clothes and you are welcome to come and learn from me on a one-on-one basis.
