AUT lecturers inspire fashion student

Leona Wang has enjoyed studying fashion design at AUT so much that she is now working on her third qualification.

Leona gained a Bachelor Design degree at AUT, stayed on to extend her knowledge of fashion with a Bachelor of Art and Design (Honours), and is now studying for a Master of Art and Design.

“I learned a lot through the project-focused research during my honours year and was keen to expand on this. I really enjoy doing design projects and I’ve found my lecturers inspirational,” says Leona, from China.

She was drawn to AUT by its impressive facilities and caring staff.

Leona says it has been good to work with technicians from AUT’s textile and design lab and 3D lab.

“The lecturers are also always encouraging and positive, and guide you through your projects.”

Studying fashion in New Zealand has given Leona opportunities to showcase her designs, which are a creative blend of ethnic elements and modern technologies. She presented her work at the 2015 Costume and Textile Association of New Zealand Symposium, and a Future + Fashion event at Spark Lab.
