Bethan Smith graduated from Leeds College of Art in 2017 after studying Fashion Concepts and Communication. Her first micro-collection focuses on free hand drawing and mark making and how these are communicated through design. Her concept examines the relationship between art and fashion, by using fine art processes to inspire design such as sculpture.
Her first collection features a set of laser cut, acrylic pieces inspired by the texture of paint.
Smith has interned with designers such as Julien MacDonald and Mary Katrantzou. Her previous work has been awarded the Confucius Institute award, appeared in multiple catwalks and has been shown on the SHOWstudio website.
