What kind of experience did you have in sewing prior to your enrollment? Basic sewing skills
What inspired you to take the Fashion Design programs? To learn new skills and just to get better, I love to sew, I just was not that good at it, and how to put in a zipper.
What were your expectations of the program? To learn proper skills in zippers, pockets and finishing.
Were your expectation met or exceeded? I learnt all that I want and so much more. Pattern making, professional finishing and to be apart of Saskatchewan Fashion Week.
What surprised you the most? To be part of Saskatchewan Fashion Week was a wonderful surprise to be apart of. Seeing fabric samples in person would have been nice, but Janis did a great job at selecting what we needed.
What is your favourite memory of the program? Meeting some fabulous talented people, sharing ideas, the creating and seeing the final looks. The celebration of all the hard work.
How do you see yourself using your new skills? I will certainly be using all my new skills, I can adjust, create what I want, and that is jus the beginning.
How are you feeling leading up to SFW? Very excited to share what myself and fellow students have created, but nervous, “will they like it”
