The #RoadToFashionWeek begins! With our FAD Fashion Futures 2017 Summer School officially complete we have 20 garments all ready to be shown at London Fashion Week. With this amazing milestone for our finalists complete it’s time we gave you an insight into our final 20 young creatives and their garments to give you a taster of what to expect at London Fashion Week. Although the Summer School was super busy we quickly caught up with each of the finalists throughout the week.
For Day 18 of our ‘Road to Fashion Week’ we caught up with Tina Zviskova. Tina is 17 and studies at City & Islington Sixth Form College. She told us a little bit about her Fashion Futures journey and the garment she created.
Q: Tell me your stand out moment from Fashion Futures journey?
“My design is weird and everyone was questioning how It would turn out but I achieved it.”
Q: Tell me your main inspirations and thoughts behind your garment
“I wanted it to look unique and I really like puffa jackets, when we started it was cold. So I wanted to make a coat and wear it, but I really like how it is puffy and big and it just looks like I would see like the king wearing it back in the day”
Q: What has Fashion Futures made you realise?
I need to make sure my designs are possible, I need to make things more professional.
Q: What have you enjoyed overall about being part of the FAD team?
I enjoyed having the opportunity to make the garment
Q: What is your next step after Fashion Futures?
I’m still at college, but after that I want to do an apprenticeship, in fashion. At college I study textiles graphics and media. But I want to continue just my textiles, but I don’t want to go university I want to do an apprenticeship.
We want to say a massive thank you to our sponsors George and NatWest for making this amazing experience possible for our young creatives.
Thank you also to The Childhood Trust for having championed us in our Summer Give Campaign.
