Raffles Design Institute

A few weeks ago i went to Raffles Design institute (RDI). First we heard a talk about trends this coming spring/summer 2012 by WGSN. Learned a lot from the talk and now i can apply it to my future outfit photos soon. LOL. after the talk RDI gave us a tour aorund their school and facilities and introduced us to the administration and faculty of RDI. So…here’s what Happened..

First Meg Aguirre the educational consultant of RDI gave us a background and history of RDI. Well RDI is the 39th campus of the Raffles Education Corporation. They branched out here in manila after having their other campuses overseas like in Mongolia,New Zealand,Ulaanbataar and Auckland. RDI is obviously a design school they offer fashion design, Fashion marketing and management,interior design and visual comunication. They also offer high Quality education with Highly renowned administration and faculty like Dr. Janet Emmanuel(UK) ,Nela San Jose(PH), Lee Miles(UK) and Buz Walker-Teach(USA). After the talk they gave us a short tour around their School…

Their Library, since RDI is still new they only have few book and magazines but hey they have high quality and informative books inside their library! :)

The student lounge. :)

Their drafting room. I was so amazed seeing the drafting room because i have the same drating table! lol. i feel at home seeing this! LOL.

Some works done by the students! :)

Facilities they offer for those who’re taking Fashion design and fashion marketing and management. :)

they have a board where some sketches and drafts of the students were posted.
Lee Miles, one of the faculty in RDI, he’s from UK. While touring RDI he visited us and kinda tour us after Meg showed us the other half of the facilities. lol. It was nice meeting Lee Miles! he’s really nice and accomodating! :)
They have a Mac room! how awesome is that! high class school with High class facilities!  :>
Bumped into my friend Sophia Sato! she’s a student of RDI. :)
This is the freehand room(if im not mistaken) :)
