Jemima Jarvis is a sustainable womenswear designer based in Scotland who graduated with a BA Fashion (Honours) from the School of Textiles and Design at Heriot Watt University in 2020. With a passion for the alpinist lifestyle, Jemima wanted to explore how mental health can be positively effected and improved through skiing, represented through ski heritage. Jemima had always been focused on combining the old with new using problem solving and innovation.
Nowadays, her interests about sustainability and heritage have grown stronger. Her collections constantly incorporate themes of up cycling, allied with historical elements. Each of her design began with a historical concept, and as she experimented with the idea of mental health and contemporary design innovation different compositions of colour and vibrant prints were explored through hand drawn responses.
