Who has been your been biggest influence?
My mum, to be honest. I’m not just saying that for good daughter points, but she has worked for herself most of her life and successfully ran her own business – at age 21 she employed 16 people and that is insane to me! She’s made me brave, and taught me the value of having a skill to look after yourself. I never relied on pocket money growing up!
What do you think is so special about the Scottish textiles industry?
Now that I’m part of it, I’ve quickly realised how tight-knit a community it is. Girls I went to college with are interning with designers I’ve met and everyone has a fierce passion for what they are doing, which makes it exciting to be a part of. From designers to models, everyone works hard to make Scottish textiles magic. There are no limits to the ideas people come up with.
