person has a passion for life. My passion consists of fashion design and art.

Looking back to when I was a child, the moments I treasure the most was the
moment my dad first taught me how to lift a paintbrush. I was so fascinated by
how my father made bold swipes across the canvas and how art would affect me in
different emotional ways. I was astounded and moved by how much these different
paintings can affect a person. I believe that fashion, just like painting, is
an art, a form of expression. Designers or the painters are the makers, and
lastly, the canvases are the beautiful models and mannequins that the makers
use to showcase their creations to the world.

The dress that influenced
me to fall in love with fashion was an Alexander McQueen gown. It was a silk organza
dress constructed almost entirely out of fresh
flowers that fell to the floor as the model walked down the runway. The first time I saw it, it actually
took my breath away. The Sarabande dress was once showcased at the Met Museum, so
others can be as moved by its pure, fragile artistry as I was. It was 2009 when
I first saw it, and soon after, I began to immerse myself into the glamorous worlds
of fashion. I wanted to pursue my career as a fashion designer as soon as I
laid my eyes on it. Fashion is a very big part of my life. It’s the ultimate
artistic expression of individual style, the way of packaging the body and
representing your inner and outer self. Each and every day, I was able to communicate
and articulate myself through the way I dress. It allowed me to bring out my
unique personality, to be different, someone I couldn’t have been without the
circumstances that clothes allowed me to express my own individuality. If I
could combine these two areas together as done in BA Fashion Design, I would be
able to pursue a career that I love: the art of fashion and the opportunity to
design clothes in the fashion industry.


I am a student taking the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program at
Southville International School and Colleges. On the weekends, I go to a design
institute and learn the basics of fashion such as fashion illustration, pattern
making, styling, etc. Each module of my course has contributed to the
enhancement of skills that I already gained but also allowed me to learn new
ones to further my career path. At the age of 15, my strong interest in
business has motivated me to fully express myself creatively and start my own
clothing line called “Aliyah’s Apparel” in which I retail and design
clothes and sell them online. I learned how to interact with customers and to
understand what people want to wear and buy. This experience highlighted the
importance of understanding my market when designing clothes and taught me how
to work towards a common purpose, and I would like to develop this skill
further by studying in fashion design. In addition to my education, I was given
the opportunity to attend and go backstage at the Philippine Fashion Week
Spring/Summer collection 2018 as a fashion design assistant. In this role, I
must be open-minded and have a keen eye for detail, as well as be up to date
with the latest fashion trends and color schemes and prioritize teamwork.


studying in the UK, with its re-claimed and mature fashion industry, I expect
to develop into a professional designer with immense potential and to learn
from qualified professionals in an environment of people from different
countries and cultures. This will enable me to further develop my creativity and
interpersonal skills while encountering viewpoints different from my own. Five
years from now, I envision myself completing my bachelor’s degree and plan to
move to Dubai and begin working in the fashion industry. My ultimate goal is to
play an integral role in the development and maturity of the fashion industry
in the Philippines. I expect to be fully-equipped to achieve the goals I have
set for myself and serve as an example to other aspiring fashion designers.
