Gemma Sargent


Born in Edinburgh in 1985, Gemma’s love of sewing began at a very young age when she started helping her mother design and make costumes for her dance competitions. Gemma studied at Heriot Watt University’s School of Textiles and Design and graduated in 2007 with a first class honours degree in Bsc Clothing Design and Manufacture. Throughout her degree she won numerous University prizes including the Ede and Ravenscroft Award (2004), the Lenzing Prize (2006) and the University Prize for outstanding merit (2004, 2006). In 2005 Gemma completed a six month work-placement with Glyndebourne Opera House where she worked as a Junior Assistant in both the Ladies Costume and Men’s Tailoring workrooms gaining training in corsetry and bespoke tailoring.
