About the talk
My talk is based around my journey to date, starting with my first fashion course in Ireland when I was 18, my training days doing internships etc, then going onto doing my masters course at London College of Fashion where I produced my most significant work, RE.TREAT . I then spend a lot of time speaking about the many aspects of my practice, the various ways that I promoted awareness of my work in the early days, the routes that we took it to market, collaborations and exhibitions that I’ve participated in, celebrities who I have worked with so far and music videos and film costumes which have generated both cash-flow and brand awareness, the many means of creating an income in order to feed the body as well as the soul!
