Cheyenne Strathmann

I am an experienced Fashion Textiles Graduate and Clothing Technical Assistant with a passion for creative pattern cutting and a wide understanding and knowledge of sewing and textiles.
Whilst being at University I have specialised in unisex fashion. Due to my training in clothing technology, I also have well developed skills in designing womenswear as well as a good understanding of textile manufacturing. I use creative Pattern Cutting techniques to generate complex shapes that can be worn in multiple ways and therefore are accessible for a variety of different body shapes.
I am very keen on learning about new

manufacturing techniques. Creating and working with textiles is also something that I practice outside of University. I take part in creative jobs and competitions to gain experience, develop my skills and expand my knowledge.
