About Wendy

MIY Collection is created by Wendy Ward.

This is she:

After working as a designer in the fashion industry for 7 years Wendy had always dreamed of having her own clothing collection.  This is what she has now achieved with MIY Collection.

Wendy has been teaching dressmaking, pattern cutting and textiles at various centres throughout Brighton since 2007 and now teaches from her own base at MIY Workshop in the centre of Brighton.  She has a degree in Fashion Design, an MA in Design and is a fully qualified, registered and CRB cleared teacher.

Wendy is a regular contributor to Love Sewing magazine and her first book about fashion design for kids was published in 2014.  Her first sewing book for adults; “The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking” was also published in 2014.  She is currently writing another dressmaking book which will be published by Cico in September 2016.

In 2013 she was nominated in Sew Magazine’s Best of British Sewing Awards in the “Best for Sewing Workshops/Courses” category and was awarded 3rd place out of the whole of the UK.
