'We met Marquel eight years ago when he joined us as a Level 1 stitching student -
you could just tell he was bursting with creative ideas.
He soon progressed to the level 2 and then started the pattern making courses too.
He was so alive with talent that we put him forward for a level 3 apprenticeship with DIS Clothing -
they make for Strictly Come Dancing. He succeed in his application and dispute a journey from North London

Today he is undertaking a BA(Hons) in Menswear Fashion Design with Central St Martins; our leading fashion university in the UK. Marquel just shows us all what a little bit of determination and grit can do - you too have these opportunties to excel.'
