My name is Nia; I was brought up by my mother’s family until the age of seven when I moved with my mother to East London to live with my father. I lived in London for several years and moved frequently around. I attended a number of schools; and was never settled in one school for long and in 2005; moved to Birmingham.
I have now been living in Birmingham for the past 6 years. I completed school and I am currently studying at Joseph chamberlain Sixth Form College. I am taking a gap year before starting University and from September I will be attending Birmingham Metropolitan College to study BTEC Diploma in Fashion and Clothing and plan to study at University level in the near future.
I have had an interest in fashion from around the age of 9, my Mother frequently adorned traditional African clothes for formal events and engagements and I was fascinated with vibrant colours and embellishments and spent huge amounts of time drawing them. My Mother has always been supportive of my career choice and it is with her encouragement that I found the confidence to study fashion.
I am influenced by the work of designers such Ziad Ghanem, Gareth Pugh, Hussein Chaylayan, Gareth Pugh and Alexander McQueen. I especially like Alexander McQueen for his unique, edgy style and his shows that were presented in unusual places with bizarre themes.
I am keen to gain further skills in designing, and really push myself to create outstanding pieces of work that can showcase my ideas and skills well. I also hope to gain experience working within fashion companies and eventually start my own line producing fashion items.
