“My inspiration for my project literally came from a coffee pot that I saw after our trip to the V&A. And it’s inspired me to look at aspects of nature and just go from there.
FAD has been so helpful, I feel very supported by all the tutors and never feel like I can’t ask for help. Art and Textiles were never encouraged at my secondary school – it was more “academic”. I felt like I was never able to express my creativity as much until I came to FAD. I would definitely recommend FAD for young people interested in fashion. I feel like I’ve grown as a person.
I’m just happy that I made something that I’m really proud of, I actually love what I made. Plus all my family, friends, close people are going to see it on the catwalk – so that’s a big deal. Opportunities like that don’t happen every day – I’m like, this is real! It’s really real.”
