Award-winning fashion designer, my lead focus is on sustainability.
Visionary, I develop collections from concept to production with the best suited methods and materials available using my technical knowledge and creativity.
My aim is to deliver an authentic product in terms of quality, style and eco credentials.
Entrepreneur, I launched my own menswear label in 2008, and fashion design consultancy in 2014.
I also have a personal interest in interior design and have completed 3 projects in listed buildings in London (Victorian mansions and Victorian factory conversion in 2010 and 2014) and in a tapestry workshop conversion in France in 2017.
Enthusiast, I often volunteer for local community organisations

Brief: Organic Cotton Leggings for Shift to Nature. Exceptional consultation, technical expertise, manufacturing management to finished product delivered. Problems communicated & solved professionally
[21 May, 2015] I hired Aude as a fashion design consultant and technical specialist for my first Eco Clothing Design project for my first clothing label for Shift to Nature. I sit in Australia, Aude works from London and she consulted seamlessly, with the highest level of expertise between myself and several manufacturers in India to deliver my concept product into the first manufacturing run. She has high technical expertise and experience in fashion design and created the designs from concept into technical specifications for manufacturing and liaised with the manufacturers at each step of sample development and assessment; negotiated a competitive production price on my behalf; and thoroughly completed all details through to swing tag production. Aude demonstrated professionalism in keeping me informed along the way, paying attention to detail, answering all of the my questions and queries on time and thoroughly. I recommend Aude highly. I will continue to hire Aude to develop the Shift Label.
