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.8 (One-Year Course – Nina)

I had no class today and returned from my trip to Amsterdam.
Fall break was lovely, but I am so happy to be back and to see my friends again.

Today I completed my final planning for my collection. I did rough Sketches for the looks that I have planned. I am excited for my collection. At the same time I see that I still need a lot of help from my teachers as I still have so much to learn.

Today I started doing the final looks. I am drawing the figures in a sketchy way as we have discovered that this works well with my style. I am doing 4 basic looks for my first collection.
Our second lesson today was painting and drawing. I absolutely loved this class. I love doing as much art as possible. The teacher is amazing and makes class fun even though I am not a grea t painter. Excited for next week.

Today I added colour to the sketches and decided on my portfolio layout.
It is exciting to see how everything is coming together nicely. I will work on some final details this weekend so that I can scan in the drawings and work further on Photoshop.
Today is also Halloween. I came to school in a bright red ski suit from the 80’s. It was so much fun.
