Gabrielle Miller is a textile designer and researcher. She is interested in thinking about the future, combining design, science and technology to create a vehicle for change and to deliver impact. Gabrielle’s research interests revolve around the exploration of fashion and textiles to drive change and improve the way we live. Fashion shapes and reflects society and communities; their culture and diversity. She is currently working on projects, both self-directed and through collaborations, in areas of social and environmental design, and textile innovation.
She graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2007, and since then has worked in textile, print and embroidery design for companies such as Alexander McQueen, Jonathan Saunders, Burberry, and Givenchy. She has previously worked on projects with the Centre for Sustainable Fashion which received extensive press coverage in the Saturday and Sunday Times Style magazines, The Telegraph Magazine, Stella, The Guardian and The London Paper.
She has recently exhibited an installation in Paris (May 2013) which was in collaboration with a neuroscientist and digital designer (Basil Safwat). The art piece is called “Presence” and can be found on her website along with other work in textile design.
Gabrielle is the assistant producer of Wearable Futures: “It has been very exciting researching, exploring and pulling together a holistic approach to what is and will shape the future of wearables.” Gabrielle currently works as a freelance textile designer and is also carrying out self-directed projects. She is always interested in new opportunities for commissions and collaborations.
