A Design Workshop with Jimmy Choo

Six very lucky AISHK students had a rare opportunity to attend a workshop where they not only learned about the career of Professor Jimmy Choo, OBE, but met the famous shoe designer himself!

A career in design is a popular option for many of our students. During the workshop, Professor Choo (an alumnus of the University of the Arts London) spoke with the young designers, sharing his personal reflections on creativity in art and design.

Tracy Liu, Selina Chan, Megan Shields, Toni Evans, Gianetta Wong and Mia Campion gained much from the session and learned more about studying Art and Design in the UK.

Reflecting on their experiences, students said that the Jimmy Choo workshop was an amazing experience which involved significant insight into the design industry, advice on portfolio work and what it takes to design a shoe. We learnt that to be in the industry you must have your own unique ideas and your passion must drive you. Professor Choo spoke to them about his career and the hardships along the way including the many rejections he faced from various companies before he became successful. Overall, the workshop was a great experience. We learnt a lot from Professor Jimmy Choo who has had a long career as a designer and is an important and esteemed figure in the fashion industry.
