Daisy Cook is a UK designer who is now residing on the Sunshine Coast, BC.
After obtaining her degree from the University of the Arts London in Illustration she
decided to move to Canada for the mountains. She ended up staying for the ocean and
pursued a diploma in fashion design from Blanche Macdonald. She was awarded a
mentorship and the opportunity to show her debut collection at Vancouver fashion week.
She was offered a teaching position at Blanche Macdonald and has since helped
implement and deliver their new Ethics and Sustainability curriculum. Whilst educating the
future of fashion at Blanche Daisy collaborated with local designer Harly Jae to create their
zero waste collection.
She grew up in a quilting and crocheting household, learning the skills from her mother
and grandmother from an early age. These traditional techniques are continual motifs
throughout her work.
Devoted to reworking the way we create clothing and how we think about used goods, she
has put together an eclectic collection of secondhand memories.
All fabrics used in this collection are locally thrifted or gifted. Daisy focuses on creating
modern classics from reimagined textiles with an emphasis on traditional craftsmanship.
