The work of a Textile Design degree student has caught the eye of a top high street supplier, leading them to employ her in her ‘dream job’.
Lauren Lewis, who graduated in 2014 with first class honours, exhibited her work at New Designers and was approached by Collective Apparel. The company, which produces designs for major high street stores, offered her a job as a Print Designer and she has been producing designs for top companies such as ASOS ever since.
Jude Woodward, Course Leader for the Textile Design degree, said “Lauren is a highly talented designer, a skilled drawer with a keen sense of style and flair for all things ‘fashion’. She proactively marketed herself, securing various internships and opportunities and the Collective Apparel job was her ‘dream job’.”
Collective Apparel believes in people before profit, and does not subsidise between manufacture and environmental responsibility. Together with their chosen supplier the company bears the responsibility to provide a safe, fair and ethical working environment for all the people who are involved in the manufacture of its clothes.
