Jasmine with some of our current students

As a child, Jasmine Gilhooly always loved making things and exploring her creative side. Today she is a leading fashion designer whose CV includes working with Jimmy Choo and a Clothes Show young designer accolade. 
Jasmine Gilhooly has always enjoyed exploring her creative side. “When I was younger I enjoyed making and selling cards to family and friends. One of my aunties was a design teacher, so I guess you could say it runs in the family.”
Jasmine initially enrolled on different courses and even worked in retail, but none of these felt right for her. In the end she returned to the idea of pursuing her passion for art. Find out more.
