Fashion case study

Abiola Dina - FdA Fashion

Abiola studies Fashion at Newcastle College University Centre. If you'd like to study Fashion at Newcastle College this September, there's still time. You can complete our online application form or check out of our Fashion and Textiles courses to learn what else is on offer.

What do you enjoy most about your course?
I enjoy the challenge that the course has given me. I enjoy learning new skills and meeting others who share the same desire for fashion.

Have you had the opportunity to go on a work placement as part of your degree?
I worked on the Beyoncé tour when she came to the region which was a great experience. My role was to make any alterations to the dancers' clothing when they were off stage. It was actually my tutor who helped secure the opportunity through her industry contacts, so it’s good to know you’re learning from those who have industry experience.

Have you worked on any projects/live briefs as part of your course?
We’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of live briefs for organisations including Dr Martens, Topshop and Levi's which I’ve really enjoyed.

What are your plans after your course?
I’d really like to set up my own fashion design company in the future, that’s what I’m aiming towards.
