Biography

Hailing from Falkirk, Lyndsay has lived in Scotland all her life.  A prolific and diligent worker, she has proved herself to have an exceptional aptitude for fashion design.

In 2012 Lyndsay graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art with a first class honours degree.  Her hard work and obvious talent earned her many accolades whilst she was there, including the Andrew Grant Bequest Fund for her first year's work, an exhibition at the London Fashion Week and an internship at Jonathan Saunders.  She then went on to gain an unconditional offer to study an MA in Fashion Design Technology Menswear at the London College of Fashion.

Lyndsay's ambition is to become an independent fashion designer.  She aims to create "an alternative minimalism, where complex cutting and fabric manipulation combine to create a groundbreaking tailored collection of exclusive garments".  She enjoys pushing and challenging herself in all areas of her design work and hopes her collections will "enhance individuality and challenge the perception of the consumer".

How the Award Helped

Lyndsay's Dewar Award supported her in her MA at the London College of Fashion.



My ultimate aim is to become an independent fashion designer of the future.  I believe that studying at L.C.F. with financial assistance courtesy of a Dewar Award would allow me to achieve my goal.
