Sarah Hope Schofield: I think that we’re at a really interesting time in the history of fashion. We’re at a great advantage as students and young practitioners to shape a new industry that we want to work in.
My name is Sarah and I’m studying the Master of Fashion (Design) at RMIT University.
I’m really loving studying again, I’m really excited to be back here. It’s very hard work but it’s quite a luxury as well to really take the time to focus on yourself and your own practice, it’s a chance that you don’t normally get.
In masters [programs] you’re really refining your own practice and what you’ve been doing in the industry and what really inspires you, so really soul search and work out what you want to do and what you’re good at. For me it’s couture techniques, for some of the other designers it might be pleating or fabric manipulation or sustainability and recycling garments, and you’re bringing that inspiration that is core to you as a designer and you’re working to develop it and refine it through the course, through the master classes, then into the future.
The academic level is very strong at RMIT, it’s not merely just about decorating clothes, it’s about understanding clothing, understanding how people will wear them, and the greater aspects of the fashion industry.
There’s just a real sense of achievement to follow a garment from the first inspiration to the final, finished product [that] is really amazing. When we’ll watch those models walking down the catwalk wearing our designs, it’s really your vision from start to finish and it’s going to be a great sense of achievement.
