“The QEST Scholarship helped me through achieving my dream which was being able to make footwear in accordance to high standards, and without it I wouldn't been able to fulfil my dream”

Parham is currently learning and practicing pattern cutting, with one of the most experienced Pattern cutters at Lobb. Being taught pattern cutting first hand is crucial, as many of the techniques can only be learnt with experience.
