William Drummond

William Drummond is a designer with a strong interest in eco design and sustainable practices in the fashion industry. He hopes to be part of the new wave of designers and entrepreneurs that implement more conscious and careful practices within the fashion design field. His style can be classified as traditional feminine but with a modern twist, focusing on unique fabric selection and unconventional trims and embellishments.

William has worked in Europe for fashion houses such as Tom Ford and Marchesa and in the U.S. for Thakoon, Sears and K-mart. His educational background includes the London Academy of Dressmaking and Design, Parsons School of Design and holds a BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology. As a consultant, and with a strong background in patternmaking, garment construction and design, he aides many small designers in their businesses, from design development, right through to production. In addition, William designs custom pieces for private clients.

At the University of Fashion, William teaches a series of CAD lessons for fashion designers using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
