Hi I am Noorin Khamisani and I have worked in the fashion industry for over 17 years, with ten of those spent in the field of sustainable fashion. I started out working for designers such as Jonathan Saunders and Ann Sofie Back and brands including Ted Baker. In 2009, disenchanted by the working methods and lack of sustainability of conventional brands, I was among the first wave of the pioneering ethical fashion movement in Europe. I set up the independent fashion business Outsider which has exhibited and sold my work internationally. I have had a parallel career in academia, lecturing in fashion design and sustainability at several British universities including London College of Fashion and The University for the Creative Arts. I hold a first class BA (Hons) in Fashion Design and an MA with distinction in Fashion Futures. My current research focusses on evolving the design process for circularity and sustainability.
