How to enrol

Rachelle Leocadio

Let's celebrate the fancy clothes makers

From research to building a concept, a crazy design, making a pattern right through to production and fitting the garment to the models. This is the part that is most exciting to me. It was [and still is] such a rewarding outlet for me. Firstly doing a diploma, then an advanced diploma, my gap year turned into my career.
