Freya Stanford, Royal school of Needlework 2021-22
Freya is a second year degree student. Freya has been sewing since she was a child and her ambition is to be a costume designer/maker for film and TV specialising in embroidery. She applied for the bursary because her family circumstance have been impacted by Covid-19 so her parents cannot help her financially and she needs to invest in an IPad because her current computer cannot manage the Adobe Creative Suite which is being used by students. Freya is a committed student who was recommended for a freelance placement for the Alexander McQueen SS2022 Collection. She enjoyed this experience immensely and learnt a great deal, so is keen to take up any future opportunities for work placements.
