Hannah had a wonderful times on her exchange in Japan.

She’d been so looking forward to the visit and had she not left the UK before lockdown it may not have been able to happen so easily.

However once their restrictions were imposed in the host country Hannah abided by the law and enjoyed her immediate surroundings

This didn’t stop her, once restrictions were eased, enjoying the culture, food and hospitality shown to her by her host nation.

Hannah has returned full of enthusiasm for the country and the kindness shown to her whilst there.

A small exhibition of work produced there is on show in Bath( details in the poster)

Abby says…

Since leaving Bath Spa University, I have gained experience into the fashion & print world. I started off interning at a fashion label after I graduated in July 2019, then interned at a print studio where I moved into a print designer role.

Sadly, along with many others, I lost my job as a print designer early this year due to the coronavirus outbreak. It took me back as I felt I had only just begun my career, although in a bittersweet way, it sparked the idea to start my own business and print studio, Velvet Rose Print.

I started this journey in April, utilising all the experience and knowledge I had and put this into my business. I kept creating and making more prints every day, alongside getting ready to launch my website. All prints are available online to make purchasing easily accessible during this time.

Velvet Rose Print is a brand-new studio looking to make an exciting change to the fashion and print industry! Aspiring to create a multi-diverse range of prints to be able to expand into men’s and womenswear as well as onto accessories. Velvet Rose ensures all prints made are to be timeless with the outcome of these prints to live as long as possible.

We wish to expand and grow the team, always on the lookout for fresh and new talented print designers!
