“I have known Cherry since she first came to do some work experience with me, having been highly recommended by her textile teacher at school. Even as a schoolgirl, her passion for creativity with fabrics was very apparent. She was awarded an unconditional place at the London College of Fashion but chose to spend a year working with us.
She progressed at high speed, showing great talent, intelligence and an innate feel for fabrics! I was very sad to lose her when she decided to move to London although she has kept in close touch and come back like the cavalry, to work with us on numerous occasions.
I have watched Cherry’s progress with delight and pride. She has a wonderful designer’s eye, a sculptor’s talent for pattern cutting and a gloriously old fashioned approach to skill, finesse and quality in everything she does!”
