Award for Technical Excellence
“I was looking at the interconnectedness between Humans and Nature, physically, looking at roots within trees and our veins.
FAD has definitely given me confidence in that I’d like to do Fashion Design in the future. It gives you good experience of the workplace and working to deadlines. You also learn a lot about the different parts of designing stuff – all of the little intricacies within making a garment.
This is the first time I’ve actually been able to design something from scratch, make the pattern – obviously with lots of help – and really see it grow, whereas before I’d just choose a pattern and maybe add some applique on or something.
Going to a fashion show anyway is really exciting, let alone it being something where it’s your design and all these other young people’s great designs as well. It’s just such an amazing feeling; I never thought I would already have my design on a catwalk at so young an age. So I’m just feeling hope, hope that this continues. It’s just been really useful and it’s definitely a confidence booster.
It’s definitely something I’m very proud of, it just feels amazing.”
