Nancy O’Conner – Painting the Gola trainer

Nancy O’Connor graduated from Ravensbourne this summer with a degree in BA Womenswear. Her collection was a vibrant selection of illustrative prints and surface textiles, making it the perfect collection for the luxury market. Her opulent beading and choice in quality fabrics really sets her collection off and away from the ordinary designer.

Currently Nancy is involved in the Gola customisation event. Where she will be using her unique sense of drawing for the Gola charity auction launching on Thursday 29th November at the Gola flagship store, Carnaby Street.

Nancy O’Connor – Illustrations


Her key skills are oil painting and illustrative work, which are clearly seen in the picture above. She expresses herself with a strong character on paper, which follows through to her fabrication work using various medias. We look forward to seeing Nancy’s creative take on the Gola brand within the next few weeks.

About Emma Wright

I am studying Fashion and Textile design at Ravensbourne, cultivating my desire for drawing, painting and designing. My work is inspired by my imagination as well as by reality, responding to my emotions through visual recordings. These hand drawn illustrations are then warped to compose a more contemporary feel. To date I have worked with a variety of companies from Hussein Chalayan, Ted Baker, Matthew Williamson and Sass and Bide in Australia. Last summer I decided to create my own label where I crafted my textile designs into scarves, printing and manufacturing them in England.
