So after three amazing (and amazingly emotional) years at the University of the West of England, I have finally graduated with First Class Honours in BA(Hons) Graphic Design. The Graduation ceremony and the weekend of celebrations that followed was super good. Thank you to all my friends and family for supporting me through my degree and I wish the best of luck to all my fellow graduates who made University the amazing experience that it was. Here's to the end of another era!

As the main part of their end of year show, the Fashion Design and Fashion Textiles students put on a fashion show to display their collections. I was asked by my friend Harri Mead to help out with modelling and not only got to model her amazing collection but also four other equally good collections. I was more than impressed with the originality and innovation of the collections and the quality of the garments themselves. Some serious hours must have gone into the design and production of the collections, not to mention the planning of the fashion show itself. It was an amazing event to be part of, witnessing the rollercoastering emotions of the fashion students through the drama of four shows spread over two days. The highlight was definitely watching the students reactions as their tutors named the ten lucky designers that had been selected to take their collections down to Graduate Fashion Week in London. Needless to say Harri was one of the talented designers picked...an opportunity well deserved!
