This year I decided it was a must that I attended Ladies Day at the York Ebor Festival and I put myself out of my comfort zone and entered the ‘Best Dressed Ladies’ Competition. I thought this would be a great way of profiling my brand and was stopped several times to be complimented on how unusual and eye-catching my headpiece was.

Having completed my Fashion Knitwear and Knitted Textile Degree over 12 months ago, I now understand how fierce the industry is and how I must constantly strive to get my creations noticed.
