Blogger Spring clean...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Monday, February 20, 2012 is it already February?

I will have to bullet point all the changes that have been happening over the last two months to fit it all goes...

* I am north bound once again - with the exciting alpaca project getting closer to deadline it seemed silly not to move closer the the action (so to speak!) and dedicate more time to getting it as beautiful as it can possibly be, ready for our Summer launch (exciting!)

* So one beautiful London flat was packed up, and one amazing other half left behind (too many exciting things happening for him in London to justify him coming with me) - but don't worry the megabus/train is becoming very good friends of ours and we are snatching as much time as possible!

* I am 50% unpacked, whether that other 50% will every actually see the light of day again is another question!

* Exciting times concerning the spinning of alpaca yarn - its so close to being finished...yay!

* My time at People Tree has completely flown by, and I had an amazing 6/7 months designing their knitwear collections for A/W12 - can't wait to see them online!

* I will leave you with a picture of my dads christmas present...who says knitting can't be cool eh?!


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.
