This year's Fabric8 Contest is well under way, and our community has chosen the 8 finalists who will have a shot at signing with Moda Fabrics to release a beautiful, botanical collection! As finalists work on completing collections based around their winning design, we're getting to know the top 8 a bit better in a series of interviews with each of our finalists! Up today is Fizah Malik, the textile design pro behind the colorful Botanical Bloom entry.
FIZAH: Hi! I am a freelance textile/pattern designer working from home and loving every bit of it. I am originally from Pakistan and am now living in Sydney for almost 4 years with my husband and daughter. I have a Masters degree in Textile Design, and I'm currently doing my second Masters degree in Design from University of New South Wales. I am an expert at juggling time as a typical day includes designing, studying and taking care of a toddler at the same time. I am a leo and turquoise is my favourite colour.
