About Me

I am a textiles surface designer with a great understanding of its function and application. I specialise in hand embroidery, embellishment and in prints for fashion. I am a passionate, experimental, and am unafraid to take risks or to push boundaries with my work. Because of this, I am the kind of person suited to the fashion industry which has ever changing rules, challenges and expectations. All images and text are copyright to Stacie Charlton.

New Home!

I have been so busy since leaving Uni, from New Designers to moving all the way to London!

New Designers went really well and I enjoyed exhibiting and the opportunity to talk to others from the industry, it was also really nice to spend a week with my friends. About 4 weeks after the exhibition I was contacted by one of the companies that viewed my portfolio, which resulted in me driving to Leicester and I was given a brief which I posted off yesterday! It was designing embellishment, editing photographs and also combining the two together to create t-shirt designs for Next, one of the brands that the company supplies too. So I look forward to getting some feedback soon and seeing where this leads me.

This is my first blog post from my new home in London! We had such a nightmare trying to find somewhere to stay, some of the places we looked at were disgusting and we both doubted that we were going to find somewhere nice! After finally finding a flat we both loved and the landlord saying no to us because we were not working in a bank or anything (even after offering FULL years rent upfront!!!) our lovely estate agent hunted the most amazing flat in Bow! It is a first floor flat with 2 bathrooms, 2 double rooms and a balcony! I have been here 2 weeks today and I'm feeling really settled in.

 My first placement starts tomorrow at Amanda Kelly, so I am really excited for the next 3 weeks!! - but not so much taking my portfolio on the tube!!
