Where fashion careers begin

Sally Johnston – Diploma

Sally Johnston – Diploma

I really liked the History of Fashion and Garment Construction, I love sewing and wanted a more hands on course than that offered by Massey.  I had to wait until the mid year intake before I could start the Diploma, but I wanted to be more hands on rather than theory oriented and this Diploma covers the basics, it certainly lived up to my expectations.  The biggest benefits were it only being 2 days a week so I could work and study, the Academy was close to home and I got to sew on an industrial machine. I like that I can turn pretty much any picture into a pattern and make garments to fit people not just standard sizes.  I would like to work in the industry but my ultimate goal is to be a costume designer for the TV/Movie industry.
