Let the adventure begin (soon...!

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Saturday, July 24, 2010
A little premature as there won't be any updating of the blog until we've landed, slept and had lots of lovely adventures but I thought i'd post the blog we will be updating on a regular basis (when we have internet access!!) whilst we explore Sri Lanka.

We are going in conjunction with the British Council and London College of Fashion to spend four whole weeks in the beautiful country of Sri Lanka, diving head first into what promises to be an amazing adventure! Working with the University of Moratuwa as well as some huge corporations and factories, exploring what Sri Lanka has to offer the fashion world of today. We received our itineraries a few days ago and i'm now packing and sorting ready for the delights of Heathrow airport!



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.
