LINDSAY JOHNSTONE

I am an Apparel Designer holding a First Class Honours degree in BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Technology from Manchester Metropolitan University. I specialise in Menswear and Outerwear with 5 years industry experience designing for leading sportswear brand Puma. In 2019/2020 I took some time out to travel through Asia; exploring different cultures, practising yoga and drawing along the way. I am now working as a Freelance Designer based in England working with a range of Activewear clients. 

Born and raised in the UK, one of my biggest inspirations for design comes from British subcultures. I love how the music and attitudes are rooted so deep into the clothing they wore. I find it fascinating seeing how the different subcultures merge between one another and even more so to see the clashes. In every angle you look at it theres always such a sense of community and passion. 

 

Art and design have always played a huge role in my life, some of my first memories involve spending hours on paint drawing clothes and cutting up my mums bed sheets to make a skirt. In the last 6 years I’ve fell in love with portrait drawing, I love how you can capture depth and emotion, it feels so personal and yet so delicate. I’m a huge believer in the outlook that everything is art.
