Artists >> Austin Vivienne
As an early adopter I am particularly interested in the interface between fashion, technology, science and sustainability to utilise my new found knowledge.
I am self motivated and love connecting with people and enjoy bringing talent together to flourish. I have a high taste level for the curated and unique that is underpinned by an approachable demeanour with a compassionate nature to facilitate well-being. I have just completed an MA in Fashion Futures formerly known as Fashion & the Environment at the London College of Fashion.
