Curriculum Vitae

Victoria Pugh

Personal Profile
I am a lively and motivated fashion student currently in my second year of study at the University of Leeds. I am thoroughly enjoying the course which gives me exciting opportunities and has an academic focus on which I thrive. I am excited by the creative world and am eager to utilise this passion to tackle the commercial and creative challenges within the fashion industry. I am self-motivated and apply myself to tasks with enthusiasm and hard work. I work well alone, as is shown by my exam success, but also value the diversity of working with a team towards a common goal and have achieved success working to briefs with fellow-students. I have a passion for literature which was fuelled by my studies at A Level, and I also love to travel. Most recently I visited the captivating city of Istanbul; I was fascinated by the rich cultural heritage of the ancient city bridging the gap between East and West.
