Originally from Argentina and a Central Saint Martins Alumni, the print for fashion designer has transformed womenswear using an abundance of beads. What has drawn me to her work was her use of beading in an erratic way, to produce a beautiful overall pattern.

I think the addition of embroidery into my work is a concept which excites me; it's a great way for me to create the tactile surfaces I envisage, as well as use different beads to represent the intricate details I previously discussed.
I've also taken great inspiration from past TIP student, Rebecca Ough. Having seen her work progress last year and then her final collection at the Degree Show, I can see great similarities in the way we work. Not only is her work based predominantly around extra weft, she also finds huge inspiration from architectural structures and geometric shapes. Her specialism is in woven fabrics for interiors - a market audience which I'm also interested in.

Rebecca has also inspired me to incorporate metallic yarns into my work - I plan to experiment with varying ways to do this, to represent the industrial element of my work.
