During my time at UCLan my confidence has grown massively, I have developed into a much more conceptual designer and learnt how to be resourceful and think outside of the box. I have become literate in the Adobe software packages and have a keen eye for colour. I love working with textiles and turning them into fashion and this comes through in my final collection. I am always excited to take on new challenges and am eager to continue developing my knowledge within the fashion industry. I am confident in my pattern cutting and manufacture skills and thoroughly enjoy seeing my creations come to life in 3D. Being a student during the COVID-19 pandemic has brought lots of new challenges, having to work from home has made me significantly more resourceful and in future, I will continue to turn what could be seen as rubbish into riches!
