My name is Francesca Phipps I am 22 years of age. I currently work in a boutique in London selling evening gowns/couture pieces. I have graduated from De Montfort University studying a BA hons in fashion design. I always try to find new innovative silhouettes with a mixture of tailoring and drape, drapery is a very strong skill for me something I am always pushing. I am constantly exploring the experimental use of colour and alternative construction of materials and fabrications. Hand drawing skills is something which I always try to use within any project.
