Born in a small town in Northern Ireland, Lindsey’s creativity and passion for design led her to relocate to London to attend the prestigious Cordwainers London College of Fashion.
There, she learnt the skills of leather craftsmanship and her creativity was able to flourish to new potentials.
After graduating, Lindsey remained in London and has worked diligently on her skills to become a competent artisan in the field of leather craft. After working for a luxury fashion house, Lindsey decided to concentrate on her own ambi¬tions and began her small business working as a freelance accessories designer and sam¬ple maker out of her North London workshop.
Drawing inspiration from many sources, Lindsey’s love for learning and exploring new potentials allows her designs to push boundaries and become conceptual art pieces as well as functional fashion.
