Manchester Metropolitan University
Born and raised in London, Claudia applied for the Sarabande scholarship on an unconditional offer from Manchester Metropolitan University, having never previously studied fashion design.
Her background in product design and media studies enables Claudia to be experimental with her development and materials, using wires, print, acrylic and moving image. Chosen by designer Todd Lynn, Claudia’s explains that her creative process varies from project to project but the key underlying factor is that she ‘collects’ inspirations. The collections are made up of quotes from conversations, an image she has taken – a moment, an event, a film, things that don’t necessarily fit together, but all of which inform the project.
