Patrick Gottelier

Job title
Head of Fashion Design

Patrick moved to Cornwall from Sri Lanka at the age of eight. Having studied Industrial Design (Eng) at Central St. Martins, he became a freelance designer working on set design, interior design and retail design before entering the fashion world. In 1978 Patrick teamed up with his partner Jane to form the Fashion Knitwear Label 'Artwork'. The success of the Artwork fashion brand brought design commissions in toiletries, cosmetics and stationary as well as International consultancies in fashion, knitwear and licensing.

Patrick returned to Cornwall with Jane in 2007 to set up new undergraduate courses in Fashion Design and Performance Sportswear Design at Falmouth. He has the opportunity and privilege to encourage and support new generations of multi disciplinary designers.
