Jennifer Whitty is an award-winning designer and researcher working in fashion design. She has worked across approaches ranging from garment design/creation (bespoke/couture to mass production) to alternative design strategies, film, performance, installations, workshops, and, more recently, digital interaction.

Whitty focuses on creating new, more flexible and sustainable ways of thinking, creating and responding to clothing that attempts to address the damaging effects of the fashion industry, such as the shortened lifespan of products, environmental waste, and the loss of traditions. Having worked in the industry in the fashion centres of New York, London and Paris, Whitty has a particular interest in new models of practice that will redefine the future of fashion.
