“I am so thrilled to have been selected for Texprint 2017. It’s an amazing opportunity and such an honour to have been chosen as one of the top graduate textile designers. It’s great to be exhibiting in London again after New Designers, and I can’t wait to show my collection at Première Vision Designs in Paris this September!
