I am a recent graduate from the university of Manchester with a degree in Fashion, Textiles and Retailing (with a study abroad).
My degree was quiet varied and consisted of a lot of different modules from garment technology, trend prediction and design to economics, website design and textile science. I also had the privileged of studying at the university of Boras in Sweden for 6 months, designing my own collection, and the National University of Singapore where I took a variety of modules including Japanese culture and Marketing and Japanese history.
I am extremely interested in sustainable and fare trade fashion and am committed to, and am trying to break into, a fashion industry that does not exploit human beings or the plant.
