Up-to-date report from one of our students!


Nationality: South African
Course: Fashion Design
Program: Semester Course
Period: Sep. 2, 2019 - Dec. 13, 2019

My Name is Nina Mostert and I am from South Africa. Currently, I am taking a gap year to learn what the world has to teach me, to find my style and to make some dreams come true!
I divided my year into 2 halves. In the first semester of the year, I lived in NYC where I was studying Film and Acting whilst I was doing an internship at a jewelry artist. I have a great love for fashion and that is why I chose to spend the second semester at Accademia Riaci. A Great school that combines fashion with the art world in such an amazing way.
I love to visit museums and see art in everything. Furthermore, I love yoga, good food, and my friends.

Fashion Design vol.11 (One-Year Course – Nina)

I worked on my mood board and added more ideas to my Pinterest. Just did basic research today.

Today I practiced using illustrator. I created a good luck duck. Just a silly image to learn how to use the basic tools. I also started brainstorming ideas for my logo. I will call my T-shirt brand “baba kat” this directly translates to baby cat in my language, Afrikaans. I think it has a nice ring to it and it is also one of my “nicknames” between me and my best friends back home.

My teacher often reminds me to think about my clients but also about what I want for the collection.
I will complete my logo brainstorm for homework.

Today I reviewed the ideas with my teacher and started creating them on photoshop and illustrator.

Today I finished the logo edits on illustrator.

Today our art visit Was to a church close to school.
After the art visit we walked to Santa Maria novella.
Our teacher Barbara is amazing. I Love her classes so much.
Tomorrow we will go to Empoli to visit a glass museum.
