New Team Member: William Drummond

Attachment-1William Drummond is not only a University of Fashion instructor, but also a fashion designer with a strong interest in eco design and sustainable practices in the fashion industry. He is part of the new wave of designers and entrepreneurs that implement more conscious and careful practices within the fashion design field – a philosophy the University of Fashion is proud to share. His design aesthetic can be described as “traditional feminine with a modern twist, and a focus on unique fabric selection as well as unconventional trims and embellishments.”

William has worked in Europe for fashion houses such as Tom Ford and Marchesa, and in the U.S. for Thakoon, Sears and K-mart. His educational background includes the London Academy of Dressmaking and Design, Parsons The School of Design and he holds a BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology. As a consultant, and with a strong background in patternmaking, garment construction and design, William aides many small designers with their businesses, from design development right through to production – a true educator in every sense of the word. In addition, William designs custom pieces for private clients.

Currently working at Theory, we are thrilled that William shares his expertise in computer aided design with the U of F community. William teaches a series of CAD lessons for fashion designers (view below) using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. From technical design to illustration to his dedication to the movement for a more sustainable fashion industry.

We are grateful to have William join our Global Garden team leading a hand in our creation of a new breakthrough in fashion that will be a global game changer!
