I'm Zeyuan, a knit designer with a background in fashion (knitwear) and accessory design. I’m a detailed oriented, self-motivated and enthusiastic person who’s always sensitive to fashion and multi-culture.
Becoming a fashion designer is my dream. I keep learning new methods of designing and dressmaking and always try to transform my skills and feelings into popular products, giving me a great sense of fulfilment. I‘d like to be a knitwear designer in the future, which is based on my interest in the various changes created by knitting and I hope to have a more in-depth exploration of the sustainable development of the fashion industry.
The MA program has been very rewarding for me. The personal and group tutorials with tutors have opened up my mind and inspired me to learn from other students' projects; attending workshops and various technical inductions has strengthened my skills and allowed me to produce better work; interdisciplinary collaborative projects have broadened my horizons and provided me with many new perspectives and insights into the world. All of these courses have been excellent in assisting me in completing my projects and have greatly enhanced my professional knowledge and abilities.
During the program, I have also been given chances to participate in many competitions and activities. I participated in the Shima Seiki Student Design Competition and got a commendation reward; I also organised a bobbin lace workshop during GERF, collaborating with students from Imperial College.
I am prepared to face the challenge of fashion design and carry out further work in the area. Besides, solid knowledge, excellent skills and an amiable personality are advantageous to adapt to this job. Dealing with tedious details positively, I am patient, hard-working, and adept at summarizing. Having strong executive ability, I attached great importance to innovation in daily practice as a stickler for perfection.
