Graduate stories: Sunghee Lee

MA Fashion Management

“Becoming a fashion student at BCU is the best decision I have ever made, because I'm having wonderful and entertaining experience. They have perfect facilities for fashion students such as photo shooting studios, a 3D printer and a well-equipped library, which allow me to be more creative by utilising a variety range of facilities.

"While I was undertaking a short project related to visual merchandising with one of my coursemates, I really enjoyed shooting visual images based on fashion trends, coordinating on fashion style and creating new ideas for visual merchandising.”
