Sam joined the luxury menswear brand Jordan Luka as part of his sandwich year out that led him to join the team in Milan for Fashion Week. In contrast Lauren joined Urban Outfitter in London, and was able to implement design skills across a range of product areas.
“Working for a contempary brand opened my eyes to what is possible in the industry and it has shown me where I can make my mark in the future. Doing a placement year taught me that being a designer is 5% design and 95% everything else.”
“My placement at Urban Outfitters in London gave me an amazing insight into the industry and I learnt so many skills, particularly in CAD, that have been a huge asset to my final year design development.”
