HEATHER MARTIN
Heather Martin
Senior Lecturer & Subject Leader
Heather is a practising designer, creative entrepreneur and an educator who disrupts the conventions of design to shift beyond the boundaries of fashion, art, craft, business and design activism. Critical making, propositional thinking and a constant questioning of the framework all propel the work that Heather undertakes in the studio, in business and in the classroom. Heather relocated to the UK from the west coast of Canada to begin postgraduate study with the Glasgow School of Art where she recently completed a Masters of Research in Design Innovation. In Canada she worked under her own conceptually driven internationally recognised fashion label MONO and comes from a background in education, leading fashion and product design courses at both Emily Carr University and Vancouver Community College. UN-MAKE & RE-CLOTHE is a new practice-based research project for Heather’s design firm MONO. It pilots investigations using the constraints of circular economy design ideologies, to generate insight into how design can innovate future capabilities and systems within fashion design. Glasgow School of Art and Royal College of Art have collectively commissioned components of the UN-MAKE & RE-CLOTHE work as part of a larger collaborative research venture into manufacturing for the circular economy.
After studying fine art at Marmara University Istanbul, Ilker Cinarel moved to the UK in 2000 to work in London, as a Designer Assistant for Vivienne Westwood's Gold Label range. Ilker then went on to work as a Designer Assistant for Giorgio Armani in Milan and as the Visual Merchandising Co-Ordinator for all Giorgio Armani UK stores. He studied an MA Fine Art Contemporary Practice at Falmouth University and graduating in September 2011, won the Sandra Blow Award and 2014 Inland Art Festival Award. Ilker's practice is multidisciplinary and explores many different mediums ranging from installation, painting, drawing, sculpture and performance. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally at Porthmeor Studios, Newlyn Art Gallery, The Montage Gallery and the 6th Istanbul Biennale. His research projects have included an internship with Höchst and Retsch porcelain companies in Germany. Recent works are also held in private collections.
