I have been a fashion and textile designer since studying fashion and art in Paris, in the mid eighties. I launched my brands in France in 1985 and 2000, and also lived in India, Hyderabad (AP), where i block printed and hand painted my own fabrics, which were used in these collections. They were sold to boutiques and private customers. I moved to Scotland two years ago, and i am now based in Glasgow where i work from my studio. I design sewing patterns and textiles with my partner who is an artist. I had been sewing for years, bridal wear, urban clothes... and i am now very happy to be back on a sewing machine for trying out the prototypes, before launching a sewing pattern.
