Adam said: “I came to UCLan with no previous design experience but with the hunger to learn and achieve. I’m looking forward to celebrating the hard work I’ve put in over the last four years and making Agnostics a success.

“Agnostics will be a contemporary streetwear brand focussing on providing, functional, stylish and comfortable garments that can be worn at any time, in any place, by anybody. I will offer customers the option to customise their pieces so that their Agnostics garments will be completely different to anyone else’s.”

His collections have been featured in the Graduate Fashion Week in London – as part of ‘Best of Show’.

Adam said: “I was incredibly proud to showcase my work at Graduate Fashion Week with influential people from the industry there to see all the talent.

“My hard work has paid off with this recognition. I also won a University award, sponsored by Creative Lancashire, for Enterprise as part of the UCLan Degree Show and was highly commended for two more. I’m very grateful to the teaching staff on my course who believed in me. It’s certainly an exciting time and I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my career.”
