Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion Design & Technology
Some of my family members had studied in Australia when they were young so after starting my studies at university in Hong Kong I decided to continue them in Australia. I chose TAFE Queensland because it has a good reputation and the fees are affordable. My dream is to be a fashion designer and at TAFE Queensland I’ve learnt lots of practical skills that will help me in my future career.
