More about Amy
Amy was named the winner of the 2017 FAD Competition as part of this year's London Fashion Week.
“It was amazing to win. Just to see my work on the catwalk at London Fashion Week was like winning, so winning overall is just amazing! I was awarded £1,000 and a photoshoot for my final collection in London.
“The Fashion Knitwear Design and Knitted Textiles course is very unique and enables you to learn about every part of the process of designing and creating knitwear. It was the facilities at NTU really drew me towards studying here. Also, the opportunity to carry out a year-long placement really appealed to me; getting industry experience before graduating is essential within the fashion world.
“During my year-long placement year, I completed three different work placements. All of these were invaluable to my university experience as I developed skills that have put me in great stead for my future career.
“I really love studying and living in Nottingham! For a small city it has so much culture and history. It has a variety of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs, and plenty of park areas for the sunny summer days. It is a definitely a student city that is very easy to get around by bus and tram - I feel very safe here.
“I’d recommend studying Fashion Knitwear Design and Knitted Textiles here because the course is very well known within the industry. Also, the standard of the students that graduate from NTU are recognised for having exceptional knitwear knowledge.”
