Studying her BA in Fashion Knitwear and Knitted Textile Design at Nottingham Trent University, Pearl Munhawa showed her graduate collection during Graduate Fashion Week. It was the concept of creating a fabric from scratch that really caught Pearl’s imagination before choosing to study knitwear, and her drive from this point onwards earned her First Class Honours when she graduated in Summer 2018.

Authenticity is important to Pearl as she embraces her personal narrative within her collections, describing her identity as a designer, “I feel I have created my best work when I have allowed myself to truly embrace my heritage. Being born in Africa but having been raised in the UK has given me juxtaposing environments to call home.”
