Doyenne Skateboards is a women-run independent brand born in 2017 in Glasgow. Alongside two friends we nurtured and promoted an ideal of inclusivity and equality within our local community through skateboarding. I am the proud co-founder and creative director of the brand in which I had the pleasure to grow while creating growth for voices that went unheard for too long (women, LGBTQI+ community, people with disabilities). The aim has always been to rewrite and recontextualise the narrative of what a brand should be, what a model look like, what a skater should look like, and so on. We took the project very personally, meeting most customers in real life, offering meet-ups, and donating to charities that do impactful work, including Skateistan, Skatepal, Concrete Jungle Foundation, Free Movement Skateboarding, Visibility, and more.

Allegories of Touch

Brighton University, BA Fashion Communication
Final Major Project

❋ Award of Excellence, Nagoya University of the Arts (JP)
Winner of the award of excellence

2021
Garments are not simply visual representatives of culture, but they carry their own material culture within.

Allegories of Touch is a reflection on the interactions present in the practice of wearing. The narrative follows an intuitive and holistic process of thought to reveal a lucid insight of fashion as a system of relationships between emotions, the human body, and the planet.

The project uses inner visions that aspire to provoke conversations around the symbiotic relationship between body and garment, the rational and the emotional, skin and fabric, material and product, societies and ecosystems.

The research is born as an instinctive photographic enquiry, developing into a visual essay, which culminates into a virtual exhibition and printed publication.

Métamorphosis

University of Brighton, BA Fashion Communication

2018
Métamorphosis is a project exploring the meaning of internal evolution. Starting from studying the essence of anti-fashion designers - such as Rei Kawakubo, Martin Margiela, and Miuccia Prada - we produced an editorial series that takes inspiration from alchemist art, philosophy, and the occult, building a narrative of introspection and becoming.






Hair

University of Brighton, BA Fashion Communication

2018
Hair Scans is a photographic series, part of an investigation of identity through the body. The project is part of a self-published zine - Klu - where the findings are curated into an interactive format nurtured by conversations, drawings, music, and photography.
