Jordanian student Aliyaa Al Faour, the winner of the Lavazza Design Competition as chosen by the Arab Fashion Council, takes us through her course at one of the world's most infamous fashion institutes, ahead of her debut collection at Arab Fashion Week
And so it begins! I'm in Italy to start my three week fashion course.
Sketching out some of my first looks at the Istituto Marangoni, one of the world’s most prestigious fashion and design institutes.
The fabric cupboard was heaven, I picked out some cotton and silk textiles to work with.
Taking a little time off to do some sight-seeing around Milan.
Architecture has always been a huge inspiration to me.
After completing the course I headed to Venice for a quick staycation.
