Statement of Purpose
Student: Drishya Limbu
Fashion is an intrinsic part of our lives; both are ever-evolving. The fashion industry has always piqued my curiosity. I am deeply fascinated by the creative and innovative world of fashion.
Fashion designing is one of the most exciting and demanding professions of today. I aspire to be a globally renowned fashion designer with my own personal brand. I firmly believe that the Bachelor of Branded Fashion Design at Torrens University, Australia would equip me with the requisite skill set to progress towards my career ambitions.
My formation years of education till 7th grade was developed at school name at my hometown, address. In the year 2013, I relocated to Kathmandu and enrolled at Jupiter Secondary School for my secondary studies. I had secured Academic % marks for my school leaving certificate (SLC), grade X (10th) studies. Recently, I successfully completed my high school education from a highly reputable educational institute in Nepal, Institution name with an overall grade of Academic % (Grade XI & XII). My major subjects were finance and accounting. At present, I am profoundly motivated to study fashion design in Australia. In order to pursue my further studies overseas, I had sat for my IELTS test in October 2017 and have attained an overall band score of 6.0.
INTEREST IN FASHION DESIGN
Prabal Gurung is my inspiration. Being from my country, he has accomplished great success and I am highly motivated to replicate his global acclaim as a world-famous fashion designer.
Although my academic background is centered on finance and accounting majors; since my younger days, I have had a strong inclination to pursue an enriching profession in the fashion industry.
Growing up, famous celebrities such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have invariably intrigued me. Both of them are immensely popular fashion icons. I excitedly follow such eminent personalities for the latest trends in vogue. In-between my high school studies, I have engaged in modeling assignments for a popular fashion retail outlet, fashionista. In my brief work experience as a freelance model, I have acquired an invaluable insight into the multi-faceted world of the fashion industry. Amid my modeling stint, I have been highly privileged to interact with a fashion designer and figures working in the clothing business.
Through such experiences, I have managed to grasp some aspects of the fashion industry; i.e designing, textiles and merchandising.
REASONS FOR OVERSEAS FURTHER STUDIES
In Nepal, there are just a handful of colleges/institutes that provide fashion design courses. Those institutes lack the world-class facilities and highly qualified academic professionals that I esteem to learn from. In general, the tertiary education system in Nepal is below international standards and largely theory based.
Significantly, the fashion design courses available in my country neither carters to my academic needs nor my career development. Those courses are not structured to inculcate practical skills and knowledge that are in real demand in the fashion industry.
Furthermore, the political instability and the numerous strikes take occur in my country are detrimental to any student’s education. Studying in a politically secure foreign country that is respected worldwide for its high-quality educational system highly appeals to me.
The opportunity to study overseas would certainly broaden my overall knowledge; both academically and personally. The experience of living and studying abroad would instill in me valuable life skills and attributes that simply cannot be cultivated in Nepal.
CHOOSING TO STUDY IN AUSTRALIA RATHER THAN HOME COUNTRY AND OTHER EDUCATION DESTINATION SUCH AS UK, USA
I am a highly dedicated person in the field of study. So, I research on education facilities to my courses here in Nepal and abroad. There are many well-reputed universities related to my course. But I wanted to explore my social horizon beyond the boundary of my native land and I want to achieve an international degree. Additionally, I research developed counties like USA, UK.
My country offered my desire course but due to some consequences, I choose to study in abroad. Firstly and
United Kingdom: The UK is well known for the strong education it provides but the tuition fee in the UK is quite expensive and not everyone can afford to study. Many students going to the United Kingdom are returning to their home countries because they are finding it difficult to deal with education system there and they are mostly forced to return and this is because of the instability of education provider where institution gets
United States: Although the United States is home to some of the top universities in the world, the tuition fees and living costs in the US are quite expensive. Cities in the US are not as safe as in Australia. There

The Bachelors of Branded Fashion Design course at Torrens University is structured to meet the demands of the fashion industry. I am convinced that the undergraduate course caters to my academic aspirations and will provide me with the right platform to progress ahead with my future plans.
