Sophie Rees has a BA(Hons) in fashion and textiles from the University of West England as well as a certificate in Innovative Pattern Cutting. Working on both high end and high street projects has given Sophie a wide range of knowledge about the pattern cutting industry. Exploring the differences and similarities between the two enables Sophie to explore her creativity while working with different brands and desigs. Sophie has worked with a number of suppliers producing samples for brands such as Topshop, ASOS, Osman and Warehouse, as well as gaining experience on the prestigious Saville Row.
Sophie particularly enjoys the problem solving aspect and the process of creating designs from scratch since it allows people to push herself to try new techniques and learn through experimentation. She also has the desire to share her skills and knowledge to others interested in pattern cutting.
