I am a Fashion and Interior Textile designer based in central London.
I grew up in a small town in the north of Spain near the city of A Coruña. Because of my passion for Art and Design I decided to move to Barcelona to study for a BA in Graphic design at the Elisava Escola Superior en Disseny. During my time in Barcelona I worked as a graphic designer for the Red Cross, developing graphic designs for the Visual communication team which included Web design, designs for booklets, book marks, posters, signs, video editing and Advertising campaigns.
I then transferred to Central Saint Martins in London to complete a BA degree in Textile design. During my studies I trained and worked for the Haute Couture ateliers of Alexander Mcqueen and Mary Katrantzou in London. I also worked for a Fashion textiles Manufacturer based in Mauritius, and worked in the Inditex design offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Soon after I went on to graduate in MA Textiles from the Royal College of Art specialising in Print. During my studies I explored the possibilities of wool, using fibre printing, screen printing techniques, Digital printing and moulding processes, developing products for fashion, accessories and Interior design contexts, researching on sustainability, using and transforming recycled materials to create textiles.
I currently design and collaborate for many Fashion brands, Design studios and retail companies worldwide developing Graphics, Print, Embroidery, and Knit. Some of the companies I work for include Alexander Mcqueen (London), Ala Mairi (Edinburgh), Vaughan (Hong Kong), Lane Crawford (Shanghai), Studio Boggia (Italy), E.D. Matt Smith (New York), Amalie Beljafla (London), Socota (Madagascar)…
I am also responsible of knit and jacquard development for an African Fashion and Textile Manufacturer specialised in high street brands, working for the accounts of Whistles, Top Shop, Top Man, River Island, Next, Zara, Monoprix… Among others.
I really enjoy working interdisciplinary within textiles. This interest in trying new fields and expressing my vision of design made me start my own Studio, “Cox & Bruach”, a print design studio that creates innovative interior products, the studio explores the boundaries of print through experimenting with unconventional processes and materials that create playful and unexpected surface patterns, we have a multi-disciplinary approach toward design that results in exciting and unique outcomes, which are underpinned by a distinctive, geometric aesthetic.
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.
