Katie Wilson is an Ex-pupil from UVHS, she studied both Textiles and Art at GCSE and A-Level. Following an Art Foundation Course she went onto study Fashion at Winchester School of Art and and then she worked in the Fashion industry, designing for Toast. From all of this she has found her love for Knitwear and has started her own design company called Oubas Knitwear. Katie came back to UVHS to run a workshop with the A-Level fashion students. She brought examples of her portfolio from University and Toast along with her current Oubas Knitwear range to inspire their coursework projects. Due to her experience she was able to discuss the industry, her course at University and starting her own business. It was a valuable experience for the A-Level students as many of them are planning to go on to Fashion and Textiles degrees. Her work was exciting and original and a great inspiration to the students. Having taught Katie both GCSE and A Level textiles it was a pleasure to have her in and see how her career in Fashion has developed.
