After a long summer break, with a nice long rest and then the stress of moving down to sunny London, I am now ready and raring to get back to creating!! I enroll for my Masters in Fashion and the Environment today at London College of Fashion, which i'm really excited about. My summers not actually been all that lazy...i've been working on a new collection of knitted pieces for an online boutique that launches soon called "frock around the clock" (so i'll keep you posted on how things develop!!), and have also been racking my brain for new project ideas...a couple seem promising so keep your eyes peeled!! I have also had the mammoth task of clearing out my uni house...transferring it all back to my parents house...tidying it all masses away to charity shops then repacking about a quarter of it to fit in the car down to my beautiful new place down in London Fields..phew!! 

So the Blog is back on, enjoy...


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.
