Molly is a maker, mover and muser from Leeds with a specialism in Fashion Knitwear. Her current work exists physically outside of fashion including video, painting and textiles, but concepts remain interwoven to the fashion sphere being closely tied to identity.
She previously studied Fashion Knitwear and Knitted Textiles at Nottingham Trent University, where she gained a wide breadth of fashion design skills as well as technical knit specific skills. Her skills include design research, adobe suite including; illustrator, photoshop and InDesign, pattern making, knitting on dubieds and domestics as well as developing skills on Shima Seiki and Apex 3 systems.
Molly has built on her preexisting skills within the Royal College of art by delving into the core of her artistic expression. Striving to carve out a place in an industry which she is aware is already full of innovation. Finding a place which resonates for her, designing carefully, instinctively and with purpose.
Unforeseen for Molly was the extraordinary community she has encountered and surrounded herself with this year – a community that has become the driving force behind her artistic evolution. In her creative practice, she delves fearlessly into the most vulnerable aspects of herself. Without this unwavering support, she would not have had the courage to claim this space for herself.
