Introducing, BFTA Member, Rebecca Bradley
How did you start out as a furrier?
I did fashion at Central Saint Martins and for my final collection I decided to use fur, I had fallen in love with its dynamic qualities, and intrigued by its controversial nature. I wanted to learn the facts and explore the material further.
What do you love most about working with fur?
It’s different every time, it makes my job interesting, I love the problem solving, and learning of different techniques and skills.
What do you see as the challenges?
The current climate, and the discussions by politicians and the media, it’s interesting how society looks at different farming and animal use products differently, I really wish people would research what they use and buy more thoroughly whether it be fur, makeup, fast fashion or vegetables.
Anything to add?
I love clever design and natural products, it’s fantastic to see them come together, I cant wait to create lots of new designs for the coming season.
