Alumni

Many TexSelect alumni now enjoy high-profile creative roles within the international textile, fashion and interior design industries. Some have set up as successful independent studios or businesses, and other continue to work freelance for a wide number of companies worldwide.

If you wish to work, collaborate or commission design work from any of the alumni, please contact the designers direct.  Please bear in mind that some 2017 designers may now already be in employment, be interning, or have set up their own studios.
