In my second year at University I chose printing for my elective, and I also created a print project as one of my final year projects – it was a love affair at first sight. However, I never seemed to find the time to actually include it into the collections I have done for my own label. I came across Lisa Stannard’s work when I was featured in Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration, a book in which she illustrated my collection for the feature. I really liked her hand writing, and we started our “cyber” friendship by following each other on social media sites. For my latest project I felt really strongly about including prints, therefore I asked Lisa whether she’d like to collaborate on the project.
