I've decided that I'm going to try and write something every now and then that's a little more personal to Big Fish Little Cheese. To kick things off, I'm going to write about my time at Art College studying Fashion in the late 90s.
Textiles was by far my favourite subject at high school - mostly because I was good at it so I found it pretty easy! I used my grades to get an interview at Plymouth College of Art and Design for their Fashion course. What I didn't realise when I went for my pre-acceptance interview was that the course was 50% art based and having no art experience whatsoever I was a little stumped when they asked to see my portfolio. I had nothing to offer except a sparkly white satin party dress that I had made for a Christmas party (which incidentally I wore with a feather boa and it made me look like a fairy which was totally unintentional - festive all the same).
