I’m English, from Northumberland, and grew up surrounded by fashion, literature and science. In the 1980s, my mother was an award-winning knitwear designer, my grandmother was a dressmaker and lecturer. I was encouraged to make cakes and use the sewing machine, but preferred cutting paper into small pieces.

I went to school in Holmes Chapel and experimented with self-expression and identity. While at university in Falmouth, I worked in an art gallery and met many interesting fashion and media people. I lived in East London, then in Harajuku, Tokyo.

My job involves language in order to activate other people. This blog is a way to explore thoughts, ideas, and visions, which occur frequently represented by clothing.
