Former students have come from around the world with varied backgrounds. Some from related industries, many with no design experience, but all with a desire to learn and a passion for design. Our graduates have found continued success in a number of interior design disciplines, including various sectors in design and architectural companies, property development, and in some cases their own practices.
After studying Business Studies at Napier University followed by Management Studies at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Mhairi worked with British Airways for ten years as a purser, travelling all over the world. This inspired her to design interiors for a townhouse, mews house and apartments in Edinburgh along with retail space. She set up a retail space - Toffee Limited in 2005 and has been event organiser for Inspiring Women since 2012.
Mhairi runs her design studio Tofee Design www.toffeedesign.co.uk
