The British designer looks back at her years as a BA student with nostalgia. “It was amazing. How grateful and lucky I was to study in London for three years.” Her experience at Ravensbourne University was a journey to self-discovery and growth. “I miss the thrill of it, the competitiveness, everything. Not having the closure in my last year was hard,” she said.
The only regret Imogen holds is comparing herself to other people during the course of her studies. “Now I always tell myself ‘there’s no fashion book saying what’s right or what’s wrong’. I would like to say it to new students as well. You will never go where you want to be if you are so worried of being in the ‘right’ box. You are in the industry, you are going to be the future of it.”
“There’s nothing better than people who just came out of fashion universities. They are so creative, so resourceful. So eager and passionate about the world and wanting to change it.”
At the moment the designer finds herself slightly disappointed by fashion. According to her the industry is keeping its gates closed, not allowing recent graduates to access its coveted world. “I think there’s nothing better than people who just came out of fashion universities. They are so creative, so resourceful. So eager and passionate about the world and wanting to change it,” she said.
