Bachelor of Fashion (Design)(Honours)
In 2019 I graduated from a Bachelor of Fashion (Design)(Honours at RMIT. Within this degree I aim to develop an understanding in all elements of the fashion design process from the focus on design along to manufacturing, as well as becoming aware of things such as customer psychology and finding the brands niche in the market. This degree teaches us to sew and pattern make in order to create the design concepts which we develop.
Year 7 (2009) at the Australian International School Singapore
Year 8 (2010) until completing year 12 At Caulfield Grammar School (2014)
Design Internship Kookai (February 2019, January 2016)
I completed a internship program in Kookai head office, focusing on design and pattern making. I was able to further my skills here and progress a further developed understanding of how a design concept can make it into stores in a fast fashion context.
Olga Berg (September 2016 until November 2016)
In my spare time I completed two day a week internship within the Olga Berg head office. This was interesting to not only see how an accessory company functions, but also a smaller family run brand. I did work here such as PR and marketing work for the Spring Racing carnival and the opening of their Chadstone Store. I then stayed on to do casual admin work in head office.
I completed a work experience program in the head office and design rooms of Kookai allowing me to learn, view and assist in the design and pattern making processes of commercial fashion.
In the long term I hope to become a part of a close knit fashion house as a designer or creative director. I have a strong drive to have my creative work seen on a large scale whether that be in my namesake or not.
As a recent graduate I have a fresh perspective on the fashion industry and so right now I am ready to move into a role where I can be challenged in order to apply my knowledge to, especially within a brand that I do highly aspire to.
(2014 until 2019)
From the Christmas break of 2014, I worked as a casual sales assistant across multiple Kookai stores allowing me to further experience the retail side of fashion. I was then held on at the end of my contract and became a permanent casual employee. I have now been promoted to Supervising casual employee until the current day.
Skin and Threads
(June 2016 until September 2016)
During my semester break I moved into another Sales Assistant role at Skin and Threads. Here I have had a very different insight into High street fashion retail with a higher market level product and a slower turn over of customers.
(October 2016 until May 2017)
While interning, Olga Berg opened their own Chadstone Boutique so I moved into casual retail work here, as well as inside the concession store of David Jones and Myer. Selling accessories was a new experience for me as usually a clutch is chosen after the clothes, which I was more accustomed to styling.
Backstage assistant - Kookai (February 2015 and 2016)
I volunteered to assist in the backstage work of the A/W15 and A/W16 runways, assisting in model dressing as well as set up and pack up of the location in conclusion of the event.
Backstage Assistant - Chanel
I volunteered to assist in the backstage work of the A/W16 Couture Chanel fashion showing. I did work such as outfitting and dressing the models.
Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show- Floral Fashion entry
Along with a select group of students from RMIT fashion design I was a entrant in the Floral Fashion section of the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. By competing in this, I was able to learn about the pressures of real industry deadlines while working to cater to a specific target audience.
