About this Speaker

Lynn’s work also explores new forms of aesthetics in woven textiles through innovations in material structures. Lynn runs her consultancy practice in London.

Lynn studied Textile Design at Central Saint Martins before completing her MA in Constructed Textiles at the Royal College of Art. She received her PhD titled 'The Role of Weaving in Smart Material Systems' from Northumbria University in 2016 and joined the Textiles department at the RCA in 2017.

Lynn has designed collections of metal woven fabrics, produced in Italy, which continue to sell worldwide. As a consultant, Lynn has worked alongside fashion and product designers, as well as with large companies such as Nike, Adidas and Unilever. Since 2013 she has been working with an international biomedical company for the development of the next generation of synthetic hair. Her investigation into smart textile design has led her to collaborate with various industrial partners - including chemical scientists, polymer processors, fibre extruders, yarn manufacturers as well as a variety of weaving and finishing mills across Europe and the UK.
