Textile Design at Falmouth loves to welcome our graduates back to speak to us. Designers, buyers, product developers, arts administrators, quality controllers, stylists, teachers, entrepreneurs – our talented graduates have a knack of finding just the right place for themselves in the creative industries. We love to hear their stories and be inspired by their talents, their experiences, their ingenuity and determination.
This month Sabrina Shirazi held us spellbound with her energy and forcefulness of character as she described her career trajectory since graduating. We always tell textile design students that nothing is irrelevant when it comes to researching ideas for designs and projects. Check out Sabrina’s latest project on this YouTube clip, and you’ll see that there isn’t much you can do creatively that makes a degree in textile design irrelevant either.
Congratulations to Fashion Design student, Chantelle Annonuevo for placing first in the Orange Label Project Fashion Film competition – a collaboration between LCF and the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund).
The project marks their 20th anniversary, and engages the issue of violence against women with new audiences, particularly young people, through a series of creative activities.
Further congratulations to Esmee Joinson –Evans, Fashion Marketing who came third for Illustration – we are as you can imagine delighted to sit alongside winners from LCF, The Pearl Academy, Bunka, Ryerson and the Hong Kong Design Institute.
