I’m Louise Mcpeake, a freelance childrenswear designer & illustrator. I love everything about design and have over 15 years diverse experience in fashion and illustration. I've worked in-house for some of the major high street retailers, including Debenhams, Ted Baker, River Island and Matalan to name a few but have now taken the leap into freelance. I have done extensive research on trends and have excellent commercial understanding in fashion design. From initial direction, creating prints and garment ranges through to design packs and specification sheets, i can offer the complete process. I love to travel! and I have been very lucky over the years to visit some amazing countries through work such as: China, Turkey, India and Bangladesh; gaining valuable knowledge about sampling product. I have also spent time working in New Zealand and with Australian, South African & French retailers which has helped me to understand the different markets around the world. Seeing my product in the shops or on a trip to the park with my kids is when I'm most proud. I am open to all projects and commissions no matter how big or small so please get in touch!
