In case you're wondering, yes I am a graduate from Raffles Design Institute! I graduated in 2011 and have recommended my best friend - Jes to take up Fashion Marketing at Raffles from 3 years ago too! Before I enrolled into the degree course for Fashion Design at Raffles, I graduated from another design school. I heard from some of my friends who were students from Raffles that the lecturers are very helpful and encouraging. The studying environment is very motivating and the lecturers are always supporting the students' visions and helping them to realize their ideas. Even up till this day, I feel very grateful to my lecturers from Raffles who took me in under their wing and allowed me to express my creative visions. 

Here are some of my works from my Fashion Degree portfolio where I drew and painted my illustrations, designed and sewed/handmade all the outfits - including the leather hand/leg/face accessories. 
If you'd like to see more, you can head on to my online portfolio for the full collection. (: You can translate your ideas into sketches and produce such outfits too! Once again, I recommend Raffles Design Institute for any aspiring designer, especially for fashion designers! (:
Lastly, here's me in bangs with my favorite professor Joe from 4 years ago! Definitely one of my favorite moments in life. (:

Love,
Ace
