It took me to places I never thought I’d be
at to be honest, it’s really mind blowing in very many ways and very positive ways.
And the one thing with Central Saint Martins has taught me is the ability to take risks,
so now I’m like not scared of taking risks, I am not scared of experimenting, I am not
scared of asking. I have become more independent and more confident. We were going from research
pages where you do collages where you try to create a narrative to try and get a story
along, all the time you do sketchbooks, that’s very keen on that because they kind of show,
you know, who you are because it is quirky and it is fast, quick drawings and stuff and
then design development, just getting out there many many many ideas in quite a short
time and then just deciding upon it and finally making a collection. And now I do understand
what actually research is about, how do you do it, how are you being selective about what
is is it that you are researching and how to do try to be consistent about it. So they
really try to make you really do your own thing and be personal so it’s really great.
How they force you to be really, like it has to be, everything has to be relevant, everything
has to come from somewhere and like, the sentence you hear the most here is “no fluff”, “get
rid of that, it has to mean something”. I gained confidence back to draw again and to
sketch because they really liked my style and I’ve just continued to draw everyday and
thank that’s, only that little thing is worth that I’ve had the course. It is really difficult
the course, you know it is really hard work, I have to admit, but at the same time I never
thought that I would get as far as I did during this very short time.
