I had a great time during my time studying at Barking & Dagenham College. I am a self taught artist, but it was my first time ever studying fashion design from scratch and learning how to sew, pattern cut and everything in-between. My tutor at the time was very hands on, and allowed me to utilise my strengths, but also made sure to get me to focus on aspects I wasn't as confident in. It was so much fun learning new skills, but also a lot of hard work. When I left, I felt much more prepared and ready for the next phase in my pursuit for a career in the fashion industry. I definitely have many fond memories!
