A DUDLEY woman has launched her own business as a fashion designer.

Georgia Small is now a dressmaker with her own business called Designed by Georgia Beth.

She has a website where she creates her own patterns and sources fabrics and then hand-makes clothes to order.

The 26-year-old, a former Halesowen College student, said: “I work in my studio I’ve had built in my garden and I’ve built up my business through word of mouth and influencers on-line.

“In the future I’d love to teach people how to sew and do sewing courses as well as keep my business or I would love to hire staff to sew for me depending on how my business grows.”

Natalie Johnston, Fashion course leader at Halesowen College, said: “Congratulations to Georgia on her success and her business – what a great achievement!.

“Georgia was a fantastic student with a great work ethic and we knew she would go far.”

Georgia studied the BTEC Fashion and Textiles course at Halesowen, before achieving a degree in Fashion Design with Garment Technology at Birmingham City University.
