The fashion industry is one of the most creative, exciting and vibrant industries in the world and there really is a job for everyone within it. Personally, I want to go into designing lingerie and swimwear, something which I’ve been passionate about since I was about fifteen. I fell in love with the brand For Love And Lemons and their gorgeous, intricate designs inspired me to begin designing my own.
Lingerie and swimwear is so delicate and close to the skin that it is just so different to any other types of clothes; there’s so much detail in such a small amount of material that it fascinates me. I’m a firm believer in the idea that if you’re wearing good underwear then you’ll feel happier and more confident, there’s something just so mood boosting about wearing fancy underwear. Beauty and confidence truly does start from the bottom layer of your outfit and if you’re wearing gorgeous underwear it will shine out of you.
I love looking at lots of different designers and catwalk collections, with my favourites being Zuhair Murad, Chanel and Elie Saab. The imagination of these designers astounds me and I love delving further into the collection and exploring it like I do in school for my textiles A Level. This allows me to look into the techniques used across the collections, trust me it’s incredible how subtle some of the details are on these pieces.
The fashion industry continues to inspire me day after day and I can’t wait to be a part of it myself, both as a lingerie designer and hopefully a blogger!
