5 THINGS
TO FOLLOW YOUR DREAM

  • 1. Find something you are passionate about
  • 2. Grab all opportunities to explore that passion
  • 3. Don’t be afraid to DIY
  • 4. Find your own way and stay true to yourself
  • 5. Never give up!

    That said, for me, studying design was fantastic. To learn pattern making and sewing construction as well as understanding the complete process – from idea to design and production. While learning a skill I think it’s good to be both respectful and critical in the process and find your own way of doing things.
