What I love about fashion is how it can define you as a person. The colours you choose, the styles, the accessories, they all combine to give you an overall style that is unique to you.
I enjoy experimenting with fashion, seeing what works and what does not, and working out why it doesn’t work. I had some major fashion disasters, but have learnt from them and so have developed my own sense of style.
As soon as I was old enough to work I applied for jobs in a number of High Street fashion stores and was taken on at Topshop. This has been perfect for developing my fashion sense, and I was often called upon to dress the mannequins when the latest collections came in.
Studying fashion at college has opened my eyes even more to the technicalities of fashion and design. Looking at fabrics and understanding colours and concepts was something I found I enjoyed. I was able to transfer this knowledge to actual designs, and as a result created an A grade standard collection for my final assessment.
There are numerous designers that I admire, and my preference changes with each season’s new collections. Stella McCartney and Christian Dior are my current favourites, as I feel they keep coming back with new and interesting ideas and fresh designs.
I want to study fashion at university as I know that what I have learnt at college is just scratching the surface of the fashion world. I am eager to learn more, from the hands-on design and creation, through to the theory and history of fashion that I know will help shape my future work and give me a depth of knowledge that will last throughout a career in fashion.
Aside from acting as a personal shopper and stylist to friends, I also help out at a local leisure club. I qualified as a junior swimming instructor while I was in college and regularly take swimming lessons for seven to nine year olds. I have also been involved with a number of charity events, including Race for Life and an event called Knit Together, where a number of people from my college knitted squares to make blankets for orphanages in Africa.
I have also completed the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, and rank this as one of my greatest achievements so far. However, I know there will be many more opportunities to come my way in the future, and I am committed to make them into my achievements.
