This is me.
Esther (Esty) Paradnyy
I am 21 years old, and recently completed my final year at Manchester Metropolitan University studying Fashion Design and Technology, specialising in Menswear and Sportswear. This course has pushed me to my limits and allowed me to explore my own creative purpose. Within my 3rd year of this course I completed a year long placement working at Portwest as a Trainee Junior Product Manager for workwear as well as completing tasks alongside the design team. This experience allowed me to develop my knowledge and understanding on how the industry runs, from design to consumer.
