Former Fashion student Aaiza Arshad was chosen from more than 70 young designers to display her work as part of the Fashion Futures Final at London Fashion Week.

Aaiza, 18, who studied the Level 3 Fashion course at Ardleigh Green, was proud to see her sustainable fashion designs come to life on the catwalk.

Now studying Fashion and Textiles at Ravensbourne University, Aaiza said: “Looking at everyone else's work, I never thought I'd get chosen for the final out of 70 students. It just made me realise my own potential as a designer and to never compare myself to others because everyone is different creatively.”

Organised by London charity FAD (Fashion Awareness Direct), which gives students from diverse backgrounds better access and representation to help them make it in the fashion industry, the 2019 Fashion Futures Final gave young, up-and-coming designers the chance to showcase their work exploring issues of sustainability and humans’ relationship with the natural world.

Aaiza says she found the confidence to enter through having the best supportive tutors at Havering College.

She said: “I honestly loved the course at Ardleigh Green. The facilities were great and the teachers helped me find myself in the sense of what pathway of fashion I'd be good at, as well as giving me opportunities such as doing work experience with different companies and getting me into FAD.”

She added: “My ambitions for the future are to get a degree in fashion design, become part of the industry and help make it a better place where the less fortunate creatives can showcase their work to a much wider audience – FAD is a great example of that. Also in time to come, hopefully I can have my own brand across many countries and become a successful businesswoman.”

Aaiza’s former tutor at Havering College, Julia McAusland, who went along to watch the fashion show, said: “The event was fabulous and there was some amazing work on display. I am proud of Aaiza - it is always so good to see creativity flourish.”
