WHO IS MAGPIE KNIT? WHAT MADE YOU RE-BRAND TO MAGPIE KNIT FROM YOUR ORIGINAL WORK? 
Magpie Knit is authentic hand-made British textile design, taking inspiration from the landscapes and seascapes of North-West England. It is a direct response to my fascination with the colours and textures to be found around me, a personal memory that is portrayed through craft and each collection has a spectrum of knitted accessories from hats to home ware. I have re-branded from my original work that I produced during my Masters, Rachel Murray Textiles, to Magpie Knit to reflect the direction and influences of my work: a cherished item made from luxurious materials, all with a hint of metallics to catch your eye.
YOU’VE GOT A NEW RANGE ON THE WAY, WHAT IS BRACKEN ALL ABOUT? 
The Bracken Collection is a celebration of the seasonal transition into Autumn; the rich colours brightening up the environment, wrapping up against the elements and the enjoyment of wearing comforting textures. The colour pallet I have used is a reflection of this time of year, to stimulate individual memories and to recall a contented tactile moment wearing a knit against the cold snap. As this collection will use wool, mohair and metallic yarns, the products will be incredibly soft on the skin and embody the magpie element of rich jewel like colours and textures found in Autumn. There will be newly developed items released for Bracken; additions to the accessories line with hats and mittens and a limited selection of home ware items.

The three years have been such an experience as well as extremely educational and helped me expand my creativity which I believe you can see within my work as it shows how much I have progressed, improved, and grown as a designer. I am now happy to say that I am leaving university of derby not only with a handful of skills to set me on my way but with a first class honors in fashion studies as well.
