I enrolled in this course to expand my knowledge on the fashion design industry. My goal was to immerse myself into the world of fashion as mush as possible in order to solidify my previous beliefs about why I want to study fashion design. Through the influence of Bonnie Cashin’s legacy, I have learned what kind of work I want to bring to the fashion industry. It was inspiring to learn through this course about Cashin’s self perception as more than just a designer. I believe this strong sense of self is what enabled Bonnie to propel herself forward as an individual in the industry. This course has enabled me to discover the true importance of the role fashion plays in my life and has solidified my decision to pursue fashion design in my education and for my future career.
