Marie Sansome studied fabric & garment design at Hinckley College.
She won the Independent Designer of the year at the Midlands Fashion Awards, 2018.
Marie says: Designing for me is like an addiction, connected to oneself, a part of my spirit, it's often a form of escapism for me too.” I design for a feminine, futuristic, fearless women whom I visualise. The collection I plan on showing is elegant, original and I like to think exciting too. As part of my design process I refer back, reflecting on concepts by pioneering designers and icons, blending with my creative notion. I do love it when you see your ideas become real. This drives my ambition; I want to do more. “
