How old are you?
Can you tell us about your background:
Fine Art (BA) from Loughborough University
What drew you to fashion?
I attended a summer course at LCF titled: ‘Contemporary Fashion: A Cultural Perspective’ and found the theories surrounding fashion and the mass media enthralling, and wanted to find a course which focused on this. I’m not so interested in ‘clothing’ though, I don’t really know which colour is in season.
Why did you join this MA?
As touched upon above, I found I was interested in the politics of fashion; especially regarding race and gender; this was the only course in the UK offering what I wanted.
Where do you hope to be in two years from now?
Ideally, either studying for my PhD or working for a magazine…
Why didn’t you go for a journalism degree?
I would rather have the option of going into academia OR journalism, than just journalism.
