RSN Degree Student Spotlight

15th May, 2020

We did not anticipate a few months ago, that our 3rd year Degree Students would be completing their final Major Projects at home with online learning from the RSN Staff, and we are so very proud of how they have adapted their work space and continued to work so hard.

As some of you will know who visit us every summer, the RSN Degree hosts a week long Graduate Degree Show at Hampton Court Palace at the beginning of June, and exhibits at New Designers in July; sometimes Graduate Fashion Week London and, in 2019, we were invited to attend the Port Elliot Festival in Cornwall.

During these events you do not always have the time to speak with each and every Graduate, so this year we are bringing our Class of 2020 to you with our ‘RSN Degree Student Spotlight’ feature. You will ‘meet’ each student who will explain the inspiration behind their work and will share with you pictures of their final Major Project. We hope that you will follow them on Instagram and give them your support in the future when we are able to exhibit their work.

This week we introduce you to Chelsea Burton and her Project, ‘What the Ocean Doesn’t Want I’ll Have’ and Emilie Mason and her Project, ‘The Abominable Wasteman’.

We will leave the final words to Angie Wyman, Degree Course Leader. “We have found ourselves in unprecedented times and are now learning to embrace the new ‘normal’. Our students and staff have shown strength, resilience, adaptability and creativity in how they have responded so quickly to the recent global circumstances which affect us all.

Our Graduates of 2020 will not be the ‘forgotten graduate generation’, they will be the trailblazers of the new decade.”

Look out for more Spotlights on our Degree Graduates over the coming weeks!
