When Renata Estefan took part in the interview process to study at UAL in Rio, she was concluding her Fashion Design course at Senai Cetiq. Determined to achieve her goal of studying on the prestigious MA Fashion Womenswear course at Central Saint Martins, she joined the intensive Fashion Portfolio Development course at CSM:Fashion Folio.
From this program she achieved a place on the one year Graduate Diploma course at CSM in Fashion.
It was while she was in this course that the CSM tutors recognised both her ability and tenacious work ethic!
As well as studying, Renata has shown a dedication to helping other students achieve their goals by running workshops and offering individual advice to students about the development of their portfolios.
This is what Renata had to say about studying on the MA Fashion Womenswear course at CSM when I spoke to her recently.

A Renata Estefan fala da importancia de criar uma forte identidade no seu trabalho
O curso de mestrado em moda que estou fazendo atualmente na Central Saint Martins tem sido a experiência profissional mais intensa e engrandecedora que eu já vivenciei. Os alunos são excepcionais e os professores brilhantes. Eu já tive 5 projetos e em cada um desses projetos eu descobri mais de mim mesma. Conheço melhor o meu gosto, os clientes que quero vestir e as marcas com as quais pretendo competir. Temos um projeto em grupo que me permitiu entender perfeitamente a importância da liderança e do trabalho em equipe.
