The Athena follows the journey of Nyela Malik, a young model whose career implodes when she dares to complain about a famous designer treating her as ‘an object’. Nyela decides she wants to design her own clothes rather than wear other people’s and wins a place at The Athena, London’s most prestigious college of visual arts. It is a fresh new start but also the start of new challenges for Nyela. The Athena is full of super-creative, super ambitious students – photographers, costume designers, graphic artists, fashion designers, jewellery makers – all intent on pursuing their dreams at any costs. The Athena was nominated for “Best Drama” by BAFTA British Academy Children’s Award, “Best Digital Children’s Content” by Broadcast Digital Awards and “Best Children’s Programme” by Broadcast Awards.
