It is always so enjoyable interacting with the students at London College of Fashion. Sharing some of the steps through my journey and also hearing about the challenges being faced by up and coming designers. The book, The Fashion Designer’s Resource Book, was also so well received which is exciting because I wrote it for anyone who has questions about the fashion industry and wants to know more.
