“I knew from a very early age that Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design was somewhere I wanted to be. I feel like the College has made me who I am in terms of knowledge and employability. The lecturers are all genuine experts with amazing experience and skill and you can learn so much from them. What’s more, they’re so well connected that if you set yourself goals, push the boundaries and make yourself noticed then the right doors will open for you. For example, the first top-level event I went to through the College was Naomi Campbell’s fashion party which was an incredible experience.
The fact that the degree was an intensive two year course rather than the traditional three was also a big plus. Friends of mine were still studying for their degrees and I was out here, working and earning money already. When you’ve finished a two year degree you feel like you’ve got a head start on everyone else which is really energising.”
