As well as positions within Coventry School of Art and Design (Coventry University), and earlier with the University of Derby, Rebecca has experience from the fashion industry through a number of positions including a design role within men’s casual, smart and denim wear; a role as the sole designer for multi-product activewear and performance skiwear for men, women and children and has worked as a creative consultant with both a heritage label as well as a celebrity endorsed loungewear brand.
