About
Morag Seaton is an award-winning, Scottish designer and maker with a focus on abstract tailoring, design anthropology, pockets, and environmental solutions for fashion design.

She runs interview-led projects and workshops that use clothing as a medium to explore the socio-cultural, environmental and personal significance of the stories within our wardrobes. This work is part of a wider project called Worn, an organisation that Morag co-founded with PhD researcher, Abigail Jubb. The insights from these projects are used to inform Morag’s design, products and sustainable practice.

Currently based between London and Scotland.
