The fashion program at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) is very creative and exploitative. Ryerson was able to give me the technical skills behind fashion design and RMIT let me use those to create some very outside-the-box projects. I learned tailoring to create a jacket with transparent layers to show the hand stitching and canvasing inside, millinery to make vinyl hats mimicking water droplets and digital printing to create my own patterned textiles. I suggest picking fun courses that interest you and run with it! With your free time, travel and explore! Wild but friendly kangaroos and koalas hang around in parks just outside of Melbourne.I snorkeled with dolphins and seals, did a 3 day road trip along the Great Ocean Road in Melbourne, surfed in Sydney, visited the south island of New Zealand and snorkeled with turtles, rays and tiny sharks!
