“I work as a junior designer for the Italian label Marina Rinaldi; a global luxury brand for plus size women belonging to the Max Mara Fashion Group. I am now lucky enough to have my project designs heading to production where they will soon be
in Marina Rinaldi stores around the world. It was the Salford Fashion Design course and it’s brilliant team that gave me this opportunity. They opened the big doors for me and they do that for all their students, offering amazing opportunities in indus- try and preparing them all for the sometimes harsh realities of the industry after leaving the comfort of university life. The course feeds students creativity and offers the best it can to help students think outside the box, something that really helps set them apart from others when they leave. Students are given unbelievable sup- port for those 3 years and the team are always still there even when you leave. I loved every minute of my time at Salford even when it was so so hard.
I think this course really installs a strong work ethic and confidence in it’s students, it helps stir a passion for all things fashion in them and the team help grow that for 3 years. I know I wouldn’t be where I am right now without my time at Salford, I will always be grateful for the lessons I learned there and the passion I found there”
