My dream is to open a business with two sides.
A side which celebrates inclusivity within the women's fashion industry with made to measure and off the rack hand made fashion and accessories and a side which helps to promote positive mental health and wellness through sewing.
I want to teach the skills of sewing, up-cycling and creative design to those who may be suffering with poor mental health, are in underrepresented groups, unemployed or isolated to help them to sew themselves happy.
I have a background in adult education which I left due to a frustration at how many people were left behind due to a mixture of reasons outside of their control, and with my own history of poor mental health I know how detrimental this can be. I want to be able to offer an inclusive and supportive environment to people in those situation while learning a new and valuable skill.
I want to raise funds to go towards premises and equipment to make this a reality.
