“I’ve been wanting to be a fashion designer since I was little, but I never thought it would actually happen! By the time I’m 20 I can say “5 years ago I was in London Fashion Week!” I feel really happy.
This is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this. But in just a few months I’ve learnt how to make an entire dress from nothing. I’ve been designing since I was nine years old, eight maybe, but I haven’t ever actually touched fabrics, machines or anything until FAD. I thought it was going to be really hard to do the machines and the sewing and everything, but I actually really enjoyed it and I feel like I want to do more of it in the future.
I didn’t know what to expect for the show. I’ve watched fashion shows on TV and everything, Project Runway, but this is crazy.”
