Nathalie Spencer is a London based designer currently undertaking her final year of MA Material Futures at Central Saint Martins. With a BA First Class Honours in Art and Design from the University of Leeds, her practice is material led and characterised by experimenting, sampling and refining. Having developed a deep interest in humanity’s impact on the natural world, Nathalie’s work is defined by sustainability and circular systems. In studying the extreme environmental impact of the fashion industry and in the particular context of animal consumption, her final year project proposes a vegan wool utilising the waste leaves from pineapples, redesigning waste back into the biological cycle of the circular economy.
