Incorporating a new form of functionality to fashion through a modular approach to design


I am a final year Fashion student KSA with previous internship exprerience at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Victoria Beckham and Ann Demeulemeester. 


The notion of communication drives how I approach design, creating a distinct language through the style of garments I make. In today’s world, designers need to consider the vast amount of clothing being put out into the world and the impact this has on the environment, I want to create clothing that makes people rethink and challenge the way in which they wear and combine garments. Incorporating a new form of functionality with a modular approach to design, allowing the wearer to constantly evolve their visual expression within the same set of pieces, is a key focus of my final collection.

This final collection is compiled of six look fully finished looks including garment and accessories created by myself. In addition to this, I will also be producing a look book in collaboration with a former KSA Graphics student and photographer to showcase my creations. 

Where will the money go?

Creating a final collection is the moment the BA Fashion course all leads up to. It's a really exciting time for us final years but it is also very expensive. The costs that come with maufacturing six runway-ready looks add up very quickly and outsourcing help such as a photographer and models all come at a price. 

Here is a breakdown of what the money will help me fund:

  • Toiling fabrics and trims : £150
  • Final fabrics and leathers : £250 
  • Trims (buttons, shoulder pads,...) : £150 
  • Fit model costs : £100 
  • Lookbook printing and binding : £200
  • Lookbook model : £100 
  • Photographer : £100
