More about Ruby
How did it feel to have your work exhibited at New Designers?
“Really exciting! It’s so great to see new people observe your work and show their appreciation for everyone’s fab designs and creations. I have loved talking about my work to many different people and hearing their opinions on my concepts and creations. The NTU stand received many positive comments and feedback.”
What has been your proudest moment at NTU?
“I was very proud to say I was beginning the MA course in Tokyo after being awarded the Paul Smith scholarship to live there and study in Bunka Fashion College for 6 weeks.”
What did you enjoy most about your course?
“Having the opportunity to learn new techniques has been very enjoyable; such as body casting and moulding. I have always been very experimental within my practice and like to use multiple techniques and materials to create my desired designs. Therefore, to have such an exciting selection of workshops for different disciplines made this year very exciting and fun and a real eye opener for me and my work.
What have you enjoyed about studying and living in Nottingham?
“The city hosts many art events and NTU students are always organising exhibitions or spoken word nights outside of the university, spreading the creativity out into the city.
Why would you recommend studying MA Fashion Knitwear Design?
“I would recommend this course at NTU because the facilities on offer here are unreal; the Bonington building really is a knitters paradise. The technical staff are amazing and always there to help.
What are your plans post graduation?
“I will keep designing, making and creating. I will hopefully sell some of my accessory pieces on my website and at events/stalls in the near future.
“I want to carry on exhibiting my work, therefore I will be creating more pieces for different projects throughout. I want to continue collaborating with other creative individuals and I’d love to combine this within a job role based in art and design for set and performance (props/set/costume).”
