Last week was graduate fashion week, where Colchester had a stand and my collection was exhibited. It was an amazing week and very overwhelming. All of the industry professionals go to the show to scout new designers and see the work of the graduates. I wasn't expecting a lot from it as there is so much competition and lots of graduates in one place!
However, I had some great positive feedback from lots of people who were interested in my work. This was a massive confidence boost. I made lots of contacts with the industry and interviews lined up with people that have contatced me! Very exciting!
I also sold a dress to River Island! They loved our college stand at River Island and I was so excited when they siad they wanted to buy my dress. It will be amazing to see my design in their stores, I can't wait!
Overall a brilliant week- so worth it! I now look forward to an exciting career as a designer!
