I was given a great book by my knit tutor Annie to look at of one of Maison Martin Margiela exhibitions... the simplicity and placement of his pictures and the hand drawn elements being combined together with photographs really interested me and i'm going to explore a little more into this for placement ideas for my own work. Back to my own work and I have been folding up choosers again... I now have quite a collection in the corner of my room hee hee with some giant ones really looking good so i'm looking forward to seeing what I can move them on to (at the moment they are promotional tags... but who knows!!) Today i'm continuing to prepare for my shoot tomorrow... got the models, hair and make-up sorted and just onto organising my own knitting collection to make sure we don't waste time messing around on the shoot!


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.
