Shirley joined NAFA in 2012 as a Teaching Assistant for Textile Modules. After a year with NAFA, she decided to further her studies in Fashion Design with the University of East London as she wanted to explore translating textile pieces into a collection.
Prior to graduation, she secured a position as a software trainer in Pragma Solutions, a 3D fashion software company, where she worked for two and a half years, handling brands such as Nike, Columbia Sportswear and Hugo Boss.
Her passion in teaching brought her back to NAFA in 2014 where she conducts screen printing, sewing and pattern-making classes with the Continuing Education programmes. In 2015, she took on a role as part-time lecturer with the NAFA Fashion programme.
