Alex gained a 1st class BA (Hons) degree in Knitwear from Winchester School of Art before beginning her Masters in Knitted Textiles at the Royal College of Art. Receiving the QEST Scholarship has allowed Alex to pursue her interest in the preservation and innovation of traditional textile skills. Since starting her masters she has participated in a variety of Industry projects as part of the course programme and has won a range of awards for her materials and garments.
Most recently she has enjoyed working with master craftsmen in India to produce a capsule collection of clothes, jewellery and accessories for Monsoon and Accessorize which will be sold in store next summer.
Now starting her final year Alex is working on her final collection and intends to produce a range of luxury knitwear produced in the United Kingdom using the finest materials as a showcase for the skills she has gained over the duration of her masters.
