Last week I returned from London after doing a 2 week internship at Zandra Rhodes studio after winning MAD Uk competition in September. Zandra and her team considered work that would benefit me and my practice and I spent the time working on designs for future operatic production of Salome  - I had a great time whilst also learning a lot  - I hope to return after completing my degree as I know I could learn a lot more. Thank you to everyone at Zandra's studio for making it such a useful experience.
