Amanda Hillier completed her MA Degree at Central St Martins, from here she was selected to design collections for Via Via in Italy and exhibited at Pret a Porta Paris.
She then progressed to design for Chelsea Girl, designing their Jeans and Casual wear. She has also worked in specialist areas such as Latex wear. She has her own Children’s wear label called ‘Pigalletto” and makes exclusive children’s clothing and knitwear – selling to small independent retailers around the country and only uses natural fibres in the clothing.
She has a passion for made textiles, surface treatments, knit, and textile effects. This passion she brings when helping students to learn techniques and function as independent designers. This helps the students fully understand the design process and learn about the equipment, developing skills and confidence to explore, look, find and create.
