Alice Vandy

A photo of Alice Vandy

Alice’s fashion designs have been seen on celebrities such as Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton and Jessie J, she also collaborates with some major manufacturers including Care Bears, My Little Pony and Hello Kitty.

“I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer and the course at Camborne covered lots of different disciplines, which was great as it gave me a wonderful overview of all the various paths open to me and I particularly remember enjoying life drawing. From there I was accepted by The University of Plymouth to study fashion design and on completion of my degree I then moved back to Cornwall and got a job at a high-end fashion boutique, which introduced me to the spectrum of fashion.

My goal was to have my designs on the catwalk at the Clothes Show, so I worked hard, researched a lot, got signed by a portfolio agency and was then contacted by the stylist who wanted me to be involved in the designs for the opening sequence to the show. From there I received work from the X-Factor, Got to Dance and worked with Vogue on a Range Rover launch. "

Art and Design Foundation Diploma

Level 3 • Full-time • Cornwall College Camborne


The Foundation Diploma in Art and Design is a wonderful year of discovery. You will have the time to explore your interests in Art and Design and decide which specialism you feel most comfortable developing. If you are coming from A levels, this will be a year away from a ‘school’ mentality; we are keen for you to develop as an independent creative who is willing to push boundaries. If you are someone who feels they just need a bit of breathing space, to have some time to explore and be creative, then this year can be a time to do just that. This course is very much about practical learning – you will be spending a lot of time in the Art and Design studios, where you will have a dedicated workspace and plan chest to keep all your work organised. The work you produce will build towards a portfolio for you to take with you to interviews and onward employment. You’ll be exploring a wide range of media and building on skills that you already have. You’ll be studying a subject you enjoy and developing all of the essential skills you need as a creative artist, or designer, as you progress through the course. Our studios and workshops are bright and airy and we are fortunate in having dedicated 3D, print room and ceramics workshops. Our staff have a range of specialist skills from Fine Art, printmaking, contextual studies, graphics and photography, and we also have supportive technical staff, in the workshops.
