Alison Woodhouse Graduate Profile
I am a women’s knitwear designer, specialising in feral, digital and hand knit. I am passionate about colour and developing my skills in garment construction and combining new techniques with traditional methods.

My style of design is technical sportswear mixed with casual ease using knitwear and combining them with sportswear detailing and fabrics. One of my main passions and strengths is communication and organisation within fashion. I have taken part in organising catwalks at university and was part of the fund-raising team which successfully raised £13,000.
