My name is Lucy and I’m from North East England and currently living in Edinburgh. I’m 20 years old and I have just finished my 2nd year at Edinburgh College of Art studying Performance Costume.
I’ve a mixture of experience, for example, I worked for online fashion company, Rat&Boa in Summer 2015. I emailed customers, organised their website, and assisted with planning photo shoots. I did work experience with Disney’s new live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ film in London, where I assisted the set decoration department; I was also lucky enough to assist on ‘Bridget Jones’ Baby’ the third of the BJD films. I shadowed/assisted costume designer Steven Noble and his team.
At the end of last year, I was part of a Manchester fashion-based project for students called Blue With Envy, where I was given a vintage denim jacket and could do whatever I fancied with it. This project was run by Manchester School of Art students and focused on the upcycling of old clothing. I wanted my jacket to reflect our inner ‘FIERCE’, and for the person who’s wearing it to feel like they can take on the world.
Recently, a new and upcoming fashion company called Enchanted Rebels asked me to design and make ten denim jackets for their first collection, which should hopefully be up and running from June/July this year. I have a lot of fun creating the jackets and I’m planning to start customising and selling more.
My ambition is to continue doing what I love: designing, making, and creating magical arty things for people to look at.
