About Me

Hi! Welcome to Disaster In A Dress.  Let me introduce myself...


I'm Hazel, I'm a 23 year old student still living at home in Glasgow and itching to move somewhere exciting (Oh hiya London, New York, Toronto)!  My degree has a rather impressive sounding title "International Fashion Branding" but is simply the business side of the fashion industry rather than the design side and I love it.  I recently graduated with First Class honours after working my butt off on my dissertation and final year projects.

I'm worked part-time in Glasgow fabric shop Mandors in the dress fabric department which is what really started this whole thing off.  I initially studied Physics and hated it, took a year out to work out what I wanted to do, went to a handbag making course and got my job in Mandors.  One day I decided that the whole dressmaking thing couldn't be too difficult and gave it a go.  I've never looked back.  I like to think of myself as an intermediate sewer, although I have much room for improvement and advancement.

My time at Mandors is only the start of this story and what you'll read is the continuation of it.  I recently took up a new fabric related post, at a rival retailer.  I'm now Online Sales & Marketing Assistant at Remnant Kings which means I'll be running www.remnantkings.co.uk and bringing you lots of online fabric goodness!

I'm not the best blogger in the world, some weeks I post once and others I can't shut up and post every other day.  I'm not aiming to be consistent, I just want a visual record of what I'm making.
