Martha Havard with a passion for up- cycling and looking back to her heritage is a menswear designer based in Bedfordshire.
During her time studying BA Fashion at Norwich University of the Arts, Martha was always focused on showing people that sustainability is an opportunity for creativity. She believes that the mindset of designers needs to adapt into utilising pre-existing materials in order to be able to achieve a more sustainable future for fashion.
When designing, she naturally leans towards looking at her family history of tailoring for inspiration. Her work constantly incorporates themes of sustainability, print designs and creating original textiles. Each of her designs started with these original textiles and as these developed, her designs evolved into having a strong message and personal touch.
