You might want to start off by indicating your keen eye for fashion, the way you see things differently, unlike the commoners. For example, I as a fashion non-enthusiast wont know the difference between two different items of clothing or whatever. You could start with a small engrossing paragragh portraying you at a clothing store being able to figure out the importance or origin of various fashion items and explaining the differences to a critic or cynic at the store who actually happens to think that there are no differences in the items. The message could be that you have a keen eye for spotting and appreciating fashion aesthetics. And end the para saying that this is where you actually realized your true talent for the subject.

I was old enough to work my candidacy for jobs in a variety of haute couture shops and the street was taken to Topshop. This was perfect to develop my sense of fashion, and I was often asked to dress the mannequins in the latest collection of wine

I decided to apply for a degree part-time mode, which begins in October. As you may already know most if not all academic programs require that you make a personal statement of support for your application. I know you are supposed to write about why you chose this course, etc.,

I want to study fashion at university as I know that what I have learnt at college is just scratching the surface of the fashion world
