Where and what did you study prior to your MA at LCF?
I studied BA Fashion Accessory in China before I came to LCF to study MA Footwear.
What made you want to study MA Footwear?
My BA course explored bags, footwear and jewellery – this is where I found I was crazy about studying footwear. When you put in a lot of effort into something, you become passionate, it then becomes a very important part of your life, this was footwear for me. Once I decide to do something, I always make it perfect and never give up. I decided to study MA Footwear at LCF to improve my design ability.
