Loops and loops and loops...

After feeling quite sluggish having sat on the computer, answering emails, getting frustrated writing etc all morning, I decided to spend the afternoon having a mannequin session - experimenting with pinning some of the sample pieces I have already completed ready for dip dyeing - they turned out really well and have made me a bit more confident that this idea will come together and the ideas that were in my head are actually achievable!!



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.
