Name: Tina (Liwen) Fu
Course: BA (Hons) Interior Design Top-up
Q. What was your background before KLC?
A: Hi, my name’s Tina and I’m from China.
I previously worked as a course translator in the creative industry in Beijing, including floral design, visual merchandising, and interior styling before KLC. I started to have a passion for design when I worked as a translator.
Q. Why did you decide to study Interior Design?
A: In 2017, I led a design study tour of Chinese interior designers in the US. We visited High Point Market, Biltmore Estate, New York Design Centre, Luxurious Townhouses in Manhattan and Brooklyn, etc. I was really inspired by all the beautiful interiors and got the opportunity to see all the different interior styles. After the study tour, I wanted to be a creative. I had a business trip to the UK after the study tour to the US. I was fascinated by how lively and creative it was in London, so after two trips, I decided to study interior design at KLC School of Design.
Q. What did you think of the course?
A: I really enjoyed my time studying at KLC, though it was a hardworking process. I studied a year of Diploma first, and then I wanted to achieve a bachelor’s degree. During the two-year study, I am ready to start my passion in the interior design industry. The whole study journey from research to design to implementation really trained me to be a professional interior designer, and our tutors guided us to have the confidence to present our designs.
Q. What are your plans for the future?
A: I hope I can use my strength to realise my dream of becoming an interior designer and start to do live projects.
