    Foundation Diploma in Art and DesignManchester School of Art
     - Manchester, United Kingdom
    I specialised in Fashion and Textiles during the course, with a particular interest in photography, styling and image manipulation. My final project involved researching the sustainable fashion industry, conducting a research project on the subject and producing a fashion zine as a final outcome. Throughout the project I learnt to use a sewing machine, designing my own outfits using donated garments and fabrics. I proceeded to style myself and other models involved in the photoshoots, editing these images on Adobe Photoshop and using them to create a final outcome on Adobe InDesign.
