Hello, Poppy B. That is so amazing that you are starting such a wonderful skill and art at your age ! My advice to you is that you should continue with school while getting involved in any possible opportunity around fashion shows and all things connected to the fashion industry. Keep a book of your sketching and photos of the clothes you make. Now, as you go along, you will discover all of the new talents you have. Starting young is a great advantage ! London is a rich environment for fashion with a great history of being one of the fabulous style hubs, so your choice to go there to study is spot on ! Do not let any negative talk curb your passion for what you love to do. Best wishes in all you do !

Michelle recommends the following next steps:

  • Keep sketch books
  • Make a portfolio of the clothing you make
  • Involve yourself in or create events related to fashion while you are in school
