- Do you have a personal message for students?

For learning Madeline students: I know how important it is to have fun while studying. If you believe in yourself, I can help you achieve your goals.

For learning Fashion and textile Design students: Fashion Design is not difficult but it is long working process which most of people couldn't persist. The easy way you can do is that look back of your research and sketch, clear your mind, think about what you really want and write down how can you achieve it. Then keep calm and carry on! You would find more and more exciting when you are approaching your goal:)

I decided to apply a course to do my BA Hons fashion design realisation but i did not even know what a portfolio looks like.
So I found Nikita, she gave me all the guidance I needed to complete this assignment and I submitted this course to the university.
I am really happy to share this information that I got into the university!
Without her help and support i would not have got into this university. Getting in to top university, its really hard and Nikita made this possible for me.
