Graduate Ina Marie Igoe intervied in The Irish Times

Graduate  Ina  Marie Igoe  is  currently  working  as  a  pattern  cutter  in  New  York. The  full  interview  is  available  on  The  Irish Times  link  below.

Why did you choose LSAD, and what was your experience like there?

LSAD I felt had more momentum going for it in the fashion department. For a relatively small course, and with less resources available than in Dublin for example, it was churning out competition finalists and winners, and creating quite the stir.
The fashion degree was unbelievably taxing: the hours you put in and the sheer standard that is expected from each student. The fashion department at LSAD instils drive and discipline in its students. It’s this beautiful go-getter mentality that is a fantastic thing for employers to see. I’ve worked and interned with many people and it sets you apart from so many others.
