-why you want to do that particular course
I want to work in the fashion industry, preferably a designer. A course in fashion will give me the skills I need for my future career. I want to develop my skills in pattern cutting, sewing, designing and pushi my creativity and research skills. I can't imagine doing anything else. I have a strong desire to design and make clothes that people want to wear which this coursework will give me the building blocks to do.
Same as industry experience

I'm determined to succeed in my chosen career path. I'm hardworking and a fast learner. I'm good at being independent in my work and do a lot outside of school e.g. Work experience and my fashion blog.

Clothes are one of the first things that you noticed about a person. Without them even opening their mouths we immediately judge someone on what they wear. I like how clothes can change your personality and how people perceive you. I love dressing myself and I think dressing other people would be incredible.
