Poppy Simone Dowsing is a textile print designer, focusing on luxury womenswear and resort wear. She uses her collections to push the boundaries of surface design, prints and silhouettes. Inspiration for Poppy comes through travel, photography and iconic women through history. The strengths of the women who shaped the fashion industry are printed into every piece of clothing.
Growing up, her start in fashion came from her mother, who, when times were tough, made clothes for her and her sister.
She studied BA (Hons) in Textiles for Fashion at the University of Northampton, leaving with a Second-Class, Upper Division degree.
