About


Morag Seaton is a Scottish garment designer, researcher and maker specialising in abstract tailoring, functional detail and environmental solutions for fashion design.

Morag’s research focuses on the relationship we have with our clothes. She runs interview-led projects and workshops that use clothing as a medium to explore the socio-cultural, emotional and environmental significance of the stories within our wardrobes.

This work is part of a wider project calledWorn, an organisation that Morag co-founded with her research partner, Abigail Jubb. The insights from these projects are used to inform Morag’s design, products and work within sustainable development.


[Currently based in Glasgow, Scotland.]
