A former Fashion student from Stratford-upon-Avon College has had work she created at college featured in a top magazine.

Phoebe-Nicole Steer, who completed the Level 3 Fashion course at the college earlier this year, had a piece of her work she created during her course featured in magazine Dazed: a platform that champions radical fashion and youth culture, defining the times with a vanguard of next generation writers, stylist and image makers.

Phoebe-Nicole has always loved creating and decided to focus her creativity on Fashion. After visiting Stratford-upon-Avon College she knew it was the place she wanted to study: “I remember when I visited the fashion studio classroom for the first time, seeing all of the creative spaces when I visited and I just imagined myself there. I thought it was the perfect option!”

Learning at College was the best experience for Phoebe-Nicole: “I loved being able to have everyday interaction with the same tutor, I think the support that I had really positively impacted my time. I also loved having access beyond the fashion facilities and workshops, having access to the photography studios and makeup collaborations you get a more well-rounded perspective of the entire fashion process from concept to final outcome and presentation.”

Upon completion of her college course, she began her university journey and is now studying Fashion Design at Nottingham Trent University. It was during her first term that she saw an advert in Dazed magazine looking for photos for an upcoming ad.

She decided to use photos of her final major project from her college course. She was extremely proud to have her work featured: “I felt so shocked it still doesn’t feel real and I’m very grateful to have my work shown to a wider audience.”

Phoebe-Nicole is excited to continue her fashion journey: “My future plans are to grow and improve my knowledge and understanding of fashion and to keep challenging and pushing myself so I evolve as a designer. I hope that I can eventually become my own boss as a fashion designer.”

Fashion lecturer, Louisa Figus, is proud of Phoebe-Nicole. She comments: “Phoebe-Nicole was relentless and determined in her approach to her fashion project work. She took an experimental approach to her projects, learning through deeper research and response, developing her ideas through playing with a wider variety of unique materials and processes. She was super focused in her approach to creating newness, and always pushed the boundaries of her creativity.

I was so proud to see Phoebe-Nicole’s Final Major Project work in Dazed magazine. It is good to see her creative talent being recognised.”
