Academic head on...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, July 16, 2010
To Do Lists a plenty today - this is the day of organisation, reading, quoting and generally straightening my head out before it all becomes too hectic! Chop Chop...

"Knit your way to victory
And let the needles fly
You will be surprised
How lovely hours
Go slipping by

Bring your knitting out
And keep your fears at bay
Every stitch
Is one step nearer
To the happy day"

Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
