HND Fashion Design and Production with Retail

“I’ve always loved art and design and it was always my favourite subject at school. I especially enjoyed design. When I was in 6th year I did a bit of work experience at a local dress makers and I really enjoyed it. It was a great experience.

“When I left school, I wanted to get into Fashion and I decided to study at college before going to university. I applied for HND Fashion Design and Prodcuction with Retail. It was a little overwhelming at the beginning, but we were all in the same boat and helped each other. There was a real mix in the group of different ages and experiences which helped, too. By the end of the course we were like one big family.

“I learned so much during my two years at Fife College; course-specific information as well as study and time-management skills that have served me well at uni. On the HND we studied loads of great things. I think my favourite areas were probably design aspects, developing design with source books, merchandising and store design.

It was brilliant that I was able to progress into 2nd year of BA Fashion Communication at Heriot-Watt University because it meant I could continue learning new things and developing my knowledge. I’m really enjoying it, especially the merchandising and styling elements.”
