Sophie Marsh

Sophie is a dedicated and driven textiles designer having developed a passion for design and fashion through her studies and multiple internships. Specialising in digital practices, she has a distinct illustrative hand and bold yet strong use of colour which she uses to produce innovative designs.

'Illustrating Womanhood' is an age-inclusive fashion collection inspired by the influential women in Sophie's life.

Experimenting with colour, abstraction, scale and media has helped produce bright, bold visual research during which Sophie has explored the emotions and bonds that she shares with the women that have helped shape her identity. The early experimentation has been developed through digital processes such as digital embroidery, digital print and sublimation printing into fashion outcomes intended to be worn by women of all ages. Designed for the wearer to feel stylish yet comfortable, taking into account the desires of the more mature woman, the collection features luxurious fabrics such as mohair, silk, cotton and fur.

Due to the ever-changing world that we live in, Sophie has designed her collection in a very bold and liberating way as all indicators point to the world being a different place with a potential return to the experiences of the roaring 1920s. Therefore wanting to produce designs that would sell today, the collection is designed to be worn during a time of celebration and freedom.

Once she graduates Sophie is keen to pursue a career in the fashion industry, expanding on the skills and knowledge she has acquired during her studies and various work experiences. The extra knowledge she gained from her comprehensive involvement in a growing fashion brand, during the pandemic, makes her a standout designer.

Work Experience

RIXO London (January 2020- July 2020)
A seven-month placement coinciding with the pandemic, thus creating many extra responsibilities to support the business as a whole. Whilst based in the design department time was spent assisting with mood boards, print design and trend research however when the pandemic hit it resulted in taking on extra responsibilities mainly based in the E-commerce and customer care department. This allowed experience of a broader range of tasks than was originally planned. This was a highly pressurised situation but rewarding as it taught so much.

Ted Baker London (September 2019-December 2019)
A four-month placement which included completing a brief to design an AW20 menswear collection with some prints designed being selected for their next collection. The project required seasonal mood boards, a refined and developed colour palette, CADS using Adobe Illustrator and sourcing appropriate materials for each product designed. All final outcomes produced for the project were suitably designed for the Ted Baker customer whilst aiming to improve the existing products available and never afraid to push the boundaries.

Liberty London (August 2019)
Working in the new Ready To Wear design studio. Tasks varied from preparing the showroom and samples to the highest standard in preparation for viewings from external buyers and stylists to carrying out trend research.
