HNC Fashion: Design and Production with Retail

I am a mother, granny, and carer. I am originally from Edinburgh but moved to this beautiful island 26 years ago and now call it home. I have been studying the fashion course at LCC for the past three years.

I have completed my NPA in Harris Tweed, NC, HNC, and HND. I have been a carer for the last 30 years and had been thinking about changing my career. The only other thing I could do was sew, I have thought many times over the years that I would love to start my own business but didn't have the confidence. It was then I saw the course advertised, so I applied. I worked full-time throughout my studies. It is a flexible course that allows you to manage your own time.

I have gained many skills and confidence through the course and am very grateful to the college, Netty, and Sallie for their help and support throughout my three-year journey. I have also learned fashion illustration, which I have enjoyed. Making many mood boards and illustrations.

It has been hard through the pandemic, but I feel that the college supported our learning well through it all. Our tutors worked tirelessly to make sure that the course was adapted to help us at every point.
