« Esmée did a 6 month internship for Westcott Design Ltd in 1994 as a print designer - this was a long time before the advent of Photoshop, so her work was all hand-rendered. During this time she stood out as a student of great talent with vivacity, imagination and a good work ethic. Esmee produced wonderful print designs for our collection and sold successfully all over the world. I have followed her career with great interest as she moved on, graduated and worked in Europe, taking positions at Kenzo, Replay and Moschino, and kept in touch over the years. In 2011 Westcott Design underwent a few changes and we needed someone too manage and Art Direct the Embroidery Team and oversee the collection and as luck would have it, Esmee was back in the UK. Apart form managing and the team and studio, the role put her in touch with Indian Embroidery Houses which she worked closely with, producing a wide range of beautiful embroideries, which again sold all over the world. Her language skills - Italian, French, Turkish and Arabic - were an enormous help to the company at trade shows where she merchandised and sold our product. I can thoroughly recommend Esmee to any company in the fashion industry. For any further information, do not hesitate to contact me. Peter Westcott »

I started lessons with Esmee 3 months prior to my CSM foundation portfolio review. I had not a level art or textiles however with her support and guidance I was able to gain a place on the course. Esmee is a great teacher because of her ability to adapt to each student and urge them to gain the best results!

Anisiya, LCF Womenswear Fashion Design Technology Student

At this moment I do 3 months internship at Peter Pilotto. Esmee helped me get the interview for the placement.
Esmee also helped me to prepare portfolio for Womenswear Fashion Design Technology (BA Hons) and I was accepted for this course.
Her advice and feedback were useful for me when I did 2nd term of my 1st year (Jersey Project) and same thing when I started my 2nd year.
