Loughborough University Work Experience Day

Catherine's T-ShirtMy name is Catherine and I am currently in my second year studying Printed Textiles at Loughborough University. When I initially decided to do a placement year after my second year I was a little sceptical as to whether it would be a good idea. However, after my day’s placement at Indigo Clothing I believe it is far more beneficial to have an insight into the working world.

Joining the Indigo team for the day has been a hugely enjoyable experience. Having the opportunity to design and print my own t shirt was an exciting experience, I planned to use a fashion drawing from one of my Fashion projects this year but ended up printing a phrase I love (as well as my nickname on the front!) instead as I really liked the red vintage cut tee and the gold vinyl lettering looked really effective.

Me and the heat press

Dealing with clients emails and generating quotes from numerous clients enabled me to have a deeper knowledge of the more mathematical side of printed clothing. The placement has given me a taste of the working world and I relished the experience.


  • Hi Catherine,
    Happy to know your achievement so far and best wishes for future endeavors. Being into Fashion industry for quite some time, I believe that there is some trend that never catches cold. I’m taking about designs related to goth and horror culture. In my opinion Punk rock fashion industry is more fruitful than others, i want to know what’s your say on this.

    Hi Cath,
    UOW are looking for inspiration from our students. We would like to expand the range of clubs at the University so people can purchase new club hoodies and club tshirts, which are proving very popular. If you have some witty, humourous and down right ridiculous ideas contact us at UOW with your ideas. If we use them we will send you some free club stash in the club you have created. Miss Wet Tshirt, Pub Golf, Dodgeball, Dance off are all very popular at the minute.
