Whilst in Shanghai, I helped set up the show and worked on both the Harvest Gold and NTU alumni stands. It was an amazing feeling to exhibit my own work to designers who had come from all over the world.

What made you choose to study at NTU?
“NTU is ranked very well for its Textile Design course which is what swayed me. I also heard that Nottingham was a great student city.”
What do you enjoy most about your course?
“I love how experimental we are allowed to be and how many disciplines we get taught. I also love how many areas we can branch into job wise, which I believe makes us very employable!”
You recently travelled to Shanghai in China to represent NTU at SPINEXPO, can you tell us a little bit about this experience?
“The SPINEXPO live project I completed was a group project. I worked in a group with two other very talented designers to create a collection of 12 sports inspired swatches. They were all created using Harvest Gold yarns and colour palette, which came together really nicely as a collection.
