Recently a friend of my sister's, up and coming fashion designer Nicole Murray, had her MA graduation show from the London College of Fashion. Her collection went down a storm and she got mentions from celebrities and fashionistas alike.
I was looking at some links to the press she received and was watching a video which talked to people at the show, asking questions such as 'what makes a good fashion designer?' Jane Shepherdson, chief executive of Whistles, was asked this question and replied
'Someone who has a really really strong core vision and they stick to it, but they evolve it and develop it and keep it current at all times'.
I had to write it down as it made so much sense. It seems sound advice for anyone in the arts, and to all of dance students about to graduate its something to keep in mind.
