Layer by Layer: New Young Writers on Wool

Edited by Professor Catherine Harper at the University of Portsmouth, some of my written work has been published in Bloomsbury's Textile: the Journal of Cloth and Culture within a section called 'New Young Writers on Wool'.

In partnership with ModeConnect and The Woolmark Company, the work looks into the innovative ways that wool is being used in contemporary fashion design. I chose to alternatively deconstruct the production methodology differences between making a wool jumper and 3D printed a nylon element. I was inspired to explore this further after an interview with Massimo Nicosia, the Creative Director at Pringle of Scotland - who is integrating 3D printed parts into his traditional wool heritage brand.

It was a really fun project, and of course - it's always a delight to be published.
