Burcu (pronounced Borja) is a London-Based Freelance Embellishment Designer for the past 6 years. She graduated from UAL, London College of Fashion in 2011, in Fashion & Textiles, specialising in embroidery/embellishment design. She has worked for various established high street brands, including Coast, Debenhams, Monsoon, Evans and ASOS.com, creating and designing contemporary embellishment/embroidery designs for the commercial market.
Her work involves creating and experimenting with ideas and styles that are influenced by culture and trends, aiming to create fresh, modern and innovative designs.
She has roughly 6 years experience in the embellishment design sector, having been exposed to all styles of embellishments. She has experimented greatly with bead components and fabrics, and hand-drawn intricate artworks until her heart's content. Her profession has become her passion, and has realised how little people know about embellishment design. Because of this, she is now passing on these forgotten skills in the hope to protect the decline of this unique profession.
