I am a Textile designer based in central London.
I grew up in a small village in the north of Spain near the city of A Coruña.
I started my academic and professional training in Barcelona studying a BA in Graphic design at Elisava Escola Superior en Disseny. I worked for two years as a graphic designer for the Red Cross, developing graphic designs for the Visual communication team which included digital and printed design works, I also worked on Advertising campaigns.
In 2009 I transferred to Central Saint Martins College in London to complete a BA degree in Textile design. During my studies I trained and worked in the ateliers of Alexander Mcqueen and Mary Katrantzou.
Soon after I went on to graduate in MA Textiles from the Royal College of Art specialising in Print and Material research. During my studies I explored the possibilities of wool, using fibre printing, screen printing techniques, Digital printing and moulding processes, developing products for fashion and Interior design contexts, researching on sustainability, using and transforming recycled fibres and materials to create textiles.
I have collaborated with many Fashion brands, Design studios, Retail Companies and Fashion and textiles manufacturers worldwide developing Graphics, Print, Embroidery, Knit and Jacquard designs, for both Luxury and High street markets.
I also worked for three years managing the development of knit and jacquard textiles for an African Fashion and Textile Manufacturer specialised in high street brands, developing collections for the main retail companies in the European market.
I am currently a Textile designer freelance at Alexander Mcqueen working on the Print, Embroidery and Knitwear departments in London. I also develop my own collections of Printed textiles and Artworks that I sell worldwide through my agents in Italy and the USA.
As a tutor, I look forward to supporting students on their own creative approaches, encouraging them to expand their knowledge of textiles and helping them to develop an in-depth understanding of the processes and possibilities of textiles.
