After graduating from the University of Leeds, I worked as a garment technician in two roles, including made-to-measure, before joining the School of Design in 2001, and I am now a Senior Teaching Fellow and Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) Fashion Design programme.. My teaching specialism is garment technology, garment construction and pattern cutting.
I am a member of, and secretary to, the Yorkshire Fashion Archive Executive Committee, and I oversee the management and care of the Yorkshire Fashion Archive. The Yorkshire Fashion Archive is held in University of Leeds' School of Design and explores interactions between clothing and social / cultural history, as well as informing teaching at all levels in our Fashion Design and Fashion Design Innovation programmes. I have supervised a number of volunteers and interns in the YFA to enable hands-on experience in an archive.
