Arianna Antoniazzi

Fashion pattern cutting student at UAL with design, pattern-making, digital skills, and real-world experience

I am a student at the Fashion Pattern Cutting course at the University of the Arts of London. Previously I studied for five years at the Liceo Artistico A. Volta F. Fellini in Riccione where I acquired basic knowledge and experience in the field of fashion, in particular as regards design, the creation of patterns, both hand-drawn and digitally with LECTRA and Clo, and finally the complete process regarding the creation of bespoke garments. The part of fashion that makes me most enthusiastic is putting myself on the line to make clothes that start from an idea and then materialize worn by someone in such a way as to be able to see the results of a long process. During the last few years I have also improved my use of Photoshop, Illustrator and especially Procreate. I had the opportunity to participate in multiple experiences that were divided between high school, university and companies that prepared me to work under pressure and often with immediate deadlines both as part of a team and alone.
