NAOMI FINDLAY IS A SCOTTISH FASHION DESIGNER BASED NEAR GLASGOW AND GRADUATING FROM HERIOT WATT UNIVERSITY THIS YEAR (2020). HER STYLE IS VERY FUN WITH THE COMBINATION OF BRIGHT COLOURS AND QUIRKY PATTERNING. FAMILY AND HERITAGE IS SOMETHING SHE IS VERY PROUD OF, MAKING THIS AN OBVIOUS CHOICE AS HER CORE INSPIRATION. HER MAIN DESIGN FOCAL POINTS ARE RESPONSIBILITY AND DIVERSITY AS SHE FEELS BY COMBINING A HAPPIER, MORE DIVERSE FASHION INDUSTRY WITH MORE CONSCIOUS EFFORTS TOWARDS WHAT WE ARE PRODUCING MEANS LESS WASTE AND A HAPPIER PLANET. USING UP-CYCLING TECHNIQUES IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO HER AS SHE WANTS TO SHOW HOW EASY AND REWARDING THIS STYLE OF GARMENT CONSTRUCTION REALLY IS, GIVING OTHERWISE NEGLECTED FABRICS A NEW LEASE OF LIFE AND IN TURN CREATING CONSCIOUS PIECES THAT LAST. SHE ENJOYS TAKING MORE TRADITIONAL ELEMENTS AND SEEING HOW SHE CAN MANIPULATE/ EXPERIMENT TO ADD HER OWN TWIST ONTO THEM, CREATING BOLD SILHOUETTES AND UNCONVENTIONAL TEXTURES. IT IS THESE ELEMENTS PLUS AN ODE TO 70S COLOUR PALETTES THAT DESCRIBES NAOMI'S DESIGN STYLE BEST.
