Who says you have to wait until after you’ve graduated to make it in business?🤷‍♀️ Third-year BA (Hons) Fashion Media & Promotion student Eleanor Wollweber saw lockdown as an opportunity to launch her own fashion label and went for it, with impressive results.👏 Eleanor, who studies at UCA Rochester, started Elsabelle UK in response to a behavioural shift that’s seen more people than ever shopping online during the pandemic. Her website sells clothing and handmade accessories, and her brand’s Instagram page @elsabelleuk has amassed over 15,000 followers. Eleanor said “There are so many things that studying Fashion Media and Promotion prepared me for when setting up my brand, for example when it came to building the website. As part of my course, I made two portfolios using Wix, and this helped me build all of the knowledge to make the Elsabelle site independently. It has also really helped with my product photography: I have learned so much about marketing and what makes a successful picture or marketing campaign.” Read more about Eleanor's enterprise and her experience of life at UCA: http://bit.ly/3qZ5An9 #WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #fashion #bafashion #fashiondesignrochester #ucafashiondesign #fashionblogger #fashiondesign #fashiondesigner #design #fashioncourse #fashionstudents #art #creative #fashionstyle #fashiondaily #fashionpost #fashionable #fashionaddict #fashionista #fashionlover #fashionbrand #womensfashion #clothingbrand
