Designer Lauren Vernon combines vintage hand powered knitting machines with colour, pattern and technique to create a unique range of knitted fabrics for fashion and interiors, all designed and handmade using high quality yarns.

Her graduate collection of scarves and snoods inspired by woodland and botanical form won her the University Of Derby Purchase Award.
