Project progression...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Sunday, June 20, 2010
On the project front its full steam ahead - lots of research still to be done, i seem to have only scratched the surface of possibilities within the British industry sector and how I can relate these to the fashion industry once more!

My sample yarns from Halifax Spinning Mill are arriving soon which I am really excited about seeing and playing with!

And progression on the design front is my next challenge - I want to create something that people will cherish and see as a classic - that they can wear in many different ways and to many different occasions - whether it be such a simple shape that it is open to interpretation or that it will go with a multitude of things - balancing this on my passion for wanting to create something that pushes the boundaries of peoples perceptions of British wool and shows them just how desirable and multi-seasonal it can be!

Pictures will follow soon...


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.
