Introduction to Nova Chiu's InNOVATIVE Folio Fashion Design class:
Tailored for students interested in becoming fashion designers. The course setting is highly targeted, and it is carefully designed for applicants to well-known international or Canadian institutions to ensure that students can prepare a professional portfolio that can be admitted to any ideal university.
The objective of this highly intensive fashion programme is for students to produce a portfolio of work which can be used to apply for an undergraduate, postgraduate fashion programme, or for employment or personal development. You will be given advice about future studies and follow projects in order to create a portfolio that represents your own personal approach to fashion design.
This programme will push your understanding of fashion and challenge your preconceived ideas of how to design garments. Visual research, experimentation and idea development combined with unique presentation skills are at the focus of everything you do. You will be expected to work hard, find inspiration in new and unexpected places and identify your strengths and weaknesses whilst learning to overcome your limitations. Each stage group consists of approximately 5-8 students or individual one-to-one tuition is available too.

Jessica Bumpus, editor of the famous British magazine Vogue, once commented on Nova Chiu in the preview of London Fashion Week: “With a penchant for color and innovative textiles, we’re expecting a vivid sartorial statement from this designer.”
Poppy Sukulku, editor of XO Magazine in the UK, commented on Nova Chiu: "Everything seemed to be linked carefully through the patterns and textures used throughout the show. Each garment was easily a stand-alone piece. The collection as a whole was very cohesive and flowed easily from one look to the next."
