Fashion Studies

Many people have been asking me if i am going back to study. Well, despite already having a
business that is doing relatively well, i am still intending to go back to study! Many people come
up to me and tell me they do not want to study anymore and i'm like WHY?! If i could, i would
be studying! But if u don't already know, i gave it up as i was going thru a tough time with family

quite successful! But i wouldn't recommend anyone to take the same route i did cus the “blog shop”

i've no Degree in ANYTHING.

fashion industry, learn more about fashion photography so i can do a really nice lookbook for my brand, and step out of the whole “blog shop” business and go onto a whole new level.

back to study!

eg, Loughborough University and Royal College of Music courses include 7 weeks in UK when
students get to study with their peers in UK, use the campus facilities and resources, get new
inspiration etc...

You will have tons of opportunities for overseas learning trips for research towards final project!
The Fashion students get travel to Europe to attend Fashion exhibitions!!! I WANT!!!

If you want to work in the Fashion Industry, I heard that NAFA alumni get a head start in their
career and they also typically found employment within three months of graduation! And over
90 percent of NAFA graduates secured jobs in their preferred fields related to their course of
