Student spotlight:

Rakshita

"My course puts a lot of focus on industry together with personal creative growth. During my industry placement in second year, it became especially evident that the skills I've developed as a UAL student are so relevant in the real world of work."

Studying fashion in London was always a dream for Rakshita. She enjoyed photography, styling and art direction and so decided to begin her studies at London College of Fashion on the International Preparation for Fashion course.

“During my time studying International Preparation for Fashion, I explored my various interests and finally decided to progress onto the BA (Hons) Creative Direction for Fashion course.”

The international community at UAL is a highlight for Rakshita, as she has felt supported in both her work and social life in London. Having the opportunity to exchange ideas with students and tutors from around the world has broadened her horizons.

"Meeting people from all over the world has helped me learn new things. I love the different perspectives each one of us brings to the table."

At the end of her first year, Rakshita had the opportunity to work on a live project for The World of Anna Sui. The piece she helped create, involving moving image content for online platforms, was part of the exhibition at the Fashion and Textile museum.

“Being able to have my work showcased by the museum and Anna Sui was awesome!”

Rakshita has access to all of the libraries across UAL, and she particularly likes the comfortable work spaces at London College of Fashion, London College of Communication and Central Saint Martins. These resources, like the rare archives and huge collection of books, offer a lot of inspiration.

“The best thing about studying at London College of Fashion is being able to contextualise my art and develop my creative and professional skills within the fashion industry.”

Rakshita is always excited to find new places to go and things to experience across the city. She enjoys spending time at London's many cultural sites and in the UAL libraries, both for inspiration and escapism.

"My favourite cultural sites are The Design Museum, The Barbican Centre and the exhibitions that take place at the Victoria and Albert museum. I also love exploring the various markets in London like Brick Lane and Camden Passage."

After the initial shock of moving to London from India, Rakshita soon realised that the people around her would be what make her experience so enjoyable.

"London can seem scary to start with but the city will soon grow on you. There is so much diversity here so everyone finds their community soon enough."

Her advice for the next generation of UAL students?

“Work hard. A little stress is good, just not too much. Find a balance between your personal explorative journey, creativity and your career goals.”
