日期: 8月1日2017年

时尚学生 亚当bystrzycki is ready to go out on his own thanks to Bucks New University 和 winning a place at FashionClash.

Adam, 23, who is getting ready to graduate with first-class honours degree in Fashion, has been working with those in the industry as part of his course at Bucks.

And it was these connections with the fashion world and his talent which set him apart to win a place at the Netherlands’ four-day fashion festival last month - a platform for young designers which connects talent and cultures through events 和 projects.Picture of Adam on the catwalk with a model

Course leader 简 Bowler, who still runs her own label 和 studio, encouraged Adam to apply for a place at FashionClash.

She said: “Adam is extremely innovative 和 daring; he has a great sense of what a woman is today. The woman he has created in his collection is a unique vision of femininity.

“What’s really strong about Adam’s work is his sense of textiles as well, his textiles are just as strong as his garments which is quite unusual for a fashion designer. The competition was open to people all over the world and they only selected a h和ful of the best talent so it’s very impressive he got a place.”

We talked to Adam about his experience at his first runway show 和 how Bucks has helped him in his career.Picture of Adam styling a model at his show backstage

How did it feel to be showing your collection at FashionClash?

When I first arrived at FashionClash I felt very inspired - there were some very interesting performances and exhibitions. I met so many welcoming and really talented people; designers who were also showing their collections during the festival, models, photographers 和 FashionClash team of course.

What was the best part?

After months of preparation, it was the moment when I finally saw my collection on the catwalk, with music, lighting 和 big audience. It was a really unforgettable experience.

How did your collection go down with the visitors 和 other designers?

I have just moved to London and I am currently hunting for fashion jobs. My plans for the near future is to start work on a new collection 和 to keep on developing my 网站社交媒体, something very important in creative industry.  Then, once I will get my plans in order, I will need to plan a holiday!

How has Bucks helped you get to where you are today?

I have received great support from all the departments across the university during my time at Bucks, but I couldn’t be any more thankful for help and direction from my amazing tutors 简 Bowler 和 大卫 Hopwood.

大卫 are fashion designers themselves, both still working in the industry and teaching at Bucks. All our teaching staff at the University come from academic and professional backgrounds and they retain strong links with key industries 和 sectors.

Not only that, Bucks students can work with external experts on live briefs and placements as part of their course to ensure they have the skills demanded by their industry to prepare them for the world of work. So they already have work experience on their CVs 和 can hit the ground running after graduation.
