Diana established take, make, create... in the winter of 2013 following a vast career in fashion and then youth work and most currently, parties and events.
take, make, create... was born from Diana's educational, professional, occupational and cultural background, which revolved around Arts, Crafts, Fashion Design, Fashion Styling, Theatre Wardrobe Managing and Millinery.
Diana's British Vietnamese heritage, enables for her to view and interact with the world through a unique perspective where she is open to Western and South-East Asian practises and habits. Deriving from a working class background, Diana has been surrounded by frugality and has invented effective alternatives to luxury. She discovered her creative solutions to fashion and a fulfilling lifestyle by making the most of what she had, which has led to her individuality and vitality.
Throughout Diana's university education at Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion, Diana experienced part time work with children and people from all walks of life. Diana's passion for travel and inquisitive nature led her towards her desire to share the benefits of creativity. She aspires to share her colourful world with those who seek excitement, positive outlooks, adventure and solutions to problems through fun and innovative perspectives.
Post graduating and pursuing an eye opening career in Fashion for 7 years, Diana accidentally realised that her passion was with creativity and people, as opposed to the fashion industry. She decided to dedicate her journey towards enabling people of all ages, economical and social backgrounds, experience and expertise to explore and partake in creative thinking through her carefully designed workshops. Diana uses her learnings, knowledge and experience to guide and aid people in viewing objects and creative skills in a new light. She sets out to highlight liberating and economical benefits in being thrifty and developing transferable skills, within safe, encouraging, experimental and social environments.
Diana is passionate and envisions take, make, create... transporting modern people from their hectic routines, their technological devices and distractions, towards engaging with themselves and those around them, stimulating positive, real and individual growth.
take, make, create... aids personal, emotional and intellectual growth as well as provides parents/carers, opportunities to make the most of alone time, to restore, reconnect or merely to pursue everyday tasks. Diana's creative workshops are beneficial for the participants as well as those around them!!
