More about Liss
Liss Cooke trained at the London based fashion house Mary Katrantzou after completing her MA in Textile Design Innovation in 2018. She was involved in many exciting collections, collaborations and projects, including a project to design and produce a custom outfit for singer-songwriter Beyoncé. The artist wore this during her performance at the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg in December 2018. Liss invited two other alumni, Emma Smith and Katie Corner, to intern with her on this project.
Promoted to Head embroidery designer at Mary Katrantzou, Liss worked with a creative team of illustrators, designers, print designers, pattern cutters and machinists to bring the stunning seasonal collections to life.
Liss has also been involved in running embroidery upcycling workshops at NTU, as well as guest lecturing at other establishments and charity organisations around the country.
Now working as Digital Embroidery Production Coordinator at the world-renowned embroidery atelier Hand & Lock, Liss is leading the newest and most dynamic department within the historical establishment, which has been around since 1767.
