Nicole Rodgers, BA (Hons) University of Sussex, currently in my third year studying Fashion Design and Production .

A degree that focused in the first year, on the fundamental skills needed to enter the world of fashion. It was a year in which the core principles of pattern cutting and construction, illustration and knowledge of the fashion industry from a business aspect were taught, coupled with a very bitter sweet dose of contextual studies.

I began this degree with the intention of starting my own label, I knew to be able to succeed I would have to learn my new trade from scratch. That plan has somewhat diversified in the last year. I’ve learnt that my desire was limited; the realisation that there are so many elements to designing has now altered my views of which paths I would like my adventure to take and I’m confident that during the duration of my degree this will adapt as I learn more.
