Jessica Rose Braithwiate is a knitwear designer, completing her final year BA (Hons) at Nottingham Trent University. She is specialising in gender fluid, sustainably minded design. Jessica’s final collection “An Anxious Generation” looks at the anxiety inducing environments that many creatives work within.
She takes inspiration from these environments, she is creating a collection that shows the inner tension and outer exuburance of those in the creative industries. Over the last few seasons, Jessica has seen more and more fashion houses closing the gender divide in terms of their design and execution. As a response to this growing trend, she is creating a fluid, layered collection that does not prescribe to a gender.
