COVID-19 pandemic has created a gap between customers and fashion, therefore there is a need to engage people with fashion skills.

I completed fashion and textile design degree, and October 2019 I founded CoutureTherese. 

 We are a sustainable, bespoke luxury fashion and textile business. Our aim is to encourage the safety of our environment, as such we only use organic products and encourage upcycle/creative reuse to raise more awareness.

Six months down the line coronavirus stepped in. Therefore the business has been negatively impacted by the outbreak on every imaginable level. We had to cease production, abandon the studio as the first lockdown was in existance. Demand dropped straight down at a high rate. Since March all transactions in the business has gone down to 0% as there are no social activities and events going on while pandenmic is still with us. Additionally many customers simply aren't interested in fashion right now. Their main focus is on purchasing essencial needs to survive, everyone's mind have naturally been focused on that. As a result fashion has just become an after-thought, or no thought at all. 

I have identified that people have to develop new relationship with fashion, as such, I am diversifying the fashion design business. I have observed and noticed that there is a need for fashion skill lessons. Therefore, I am offering knitting, embroidery, beading, fabric printing/dye, pattern cutting and sewing to help people engage in up-cycle the.

Find attached are some of my work.
