How did the Wilson College of Textiles prepare you for your career?

The experience of having access to all of the machines in the supply chain helped me to have a broader scope of the industry and understand the potential for innovation. Being able to have a full and immersive experience around design, using the body scanner, the cutting machines and having the ability to print and knit fabrics all in the same space, provided a unique foundation for my ability to see into the future of our industry and provide solutions.
