Accademia Italiana Bangkok offers two scholarships to deserving students each academic year.
Aveenesh, 25 yers old from Malaysia is one of them.
Since her first years Avee knew that she is going to do something artistic because her family business, but when she turned 16 she decided to express her creativity through fashion.
Avee, you received a scholarship to go study one year master program in the Accademia Italiana in Florence. Congratulations.
Thank you very much. It was never my goal to win the scholarship but on the end it was a big bonus. I always thought that more important is going thru experience, doing the final fashion show. We were very involved. The school got us very involved in lots of projects. We did a project with ‘triumph’ and many other competitions.
I never had any expectations for the scholarship because all my classmates were very talented.
Once you were already in Florence with all the other classmates to participate on the final fashion show of the Accademia Italiana. How was that experience?
For me it was my first trip in Europe and it was very exciting. Meeting Vivienne Westwood and the thought of her watching my show was just like a dream.
Do you look forward to go to the campus in Florence?
Yes. I really want to experience the European culture and of course, the idea of living in one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world is just exiting.
