“Laura’s work was beautifully presented at New Designers this year. Her sleek and minimal neutral colour range, which focused on whites, light greys and transparencies was a real highlight for me. I invited her to submit her work for inclusion in an up and coming Future Materials & Surface Trend Forecast I am editing. The images she provided were a delight to have and are presented very professionally.”

“Laura’s textile work is amazing, she pushes boundaries and materials. I’ve watched Laura’s progress through Manchester Metropolitan University with great interest. It was no surprise that she was included in New Designers this year. Laura is truly a name to watch in textiles and contemporary embroidery, she will go far.”
