Yesterday was hand in day for all our work... and its all finished (i'm kind of sad!!)!! Portfolios have been sent down to London, Exhibition is all up and running (bar a slight technical fault with one of my DVD's) and all my work is neatly layed out in front of it!!. Its all done...I don't quite know what to do with myself.... although I do have Graduate Fashion Week to occupy my time next week, and a mass of business cards to fold before I head down... so not as free as I thought I was!! All of us off the course had a lovely meal over at Trof with Alan (tutor) and it was nice to relax altogether. Handing it all in felt really surreal and i'm sure i've forgotten something important but I think thats just the grade nerves setting in!! I am quite proud of myself though and like my exhibition space (now i've stopped toying around with it!!) and can't wait for our graduate show opening night!! I have left my camera with exhibition shots back in Manchester so i'll update as soon as I'm back from the capital!! I do have one photo that sums up the elation of completing our course though...



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.
