ARTIST IN RESIDENCE / VIRTUAL SAMPLE MAKER
Fashion has been part of Sam’s DNA and it would seem that his talent and drive has made his
entry into and subsequent impact on the world of fashion, inevitable. He was born into a family
of creatives – his mother a textile designer and fine artist and both of his older sisters studying
fashion at University before going onto to work in high fashion.
Sam’s clothing design career started with a BTEC degree in Textiles in the UK. Sam has been
designing and making clothes, including his own, for years and as a fan of bold colors and
extravagant designs, Alexander McQueen has always been his favorite inspiration. In 2020 he
began employing the digital fashion design software Clo3D enabling him to further develop his
virtual design skillsets.
Sam’s expertise with complex software as well as his design sense brought him to the attention of Modern Mirror where he is an Artist in Residence and a Virtual Sample Maker and outside of work he continues to work on his own collection. Prior to joining Modern Mirror Sam’s digital collection was featured at Metafash’s “digital-only fashion week, the first immaterial fashion week held in Brazil and Latin America.” He came up with his own theme and created three different outfits for both men and women that were featured in the digital fashion week. Sam is challenging the societal expectations and perceptions of people with Down syndrome with his creativity and technical abilities in this field. However, despite living in a world that often limits opportunities for those with such conditions based on perceived ability, he has proven that his neurodiversity will not stand in the way of his creative potential and fashion design career. For Sam this is just the beginning of what will surely be a long and successful career in the fashion industry.
“My dream is to have Viktoria walk down the catwalk in my clothes and have the audience applaud on the designs and her.” – Samuel Goodyear
