Helen Adams is well known for textile designs, painting and textile printing. Six 'O' Levels, One 'A' Level, CDS-CAD (Advanced), MA Degree Printed Textiles, BA (Hons) Degree Printed Textiles, One 'A/O' Level and FIoT (Fashion Institute of Technology - New York) are her proudest achievements so far. She resides near the centre of Faversham (Kent) also known as "Market Town of Kings" because of all the royalty that stayed in the town many centuries ago.

The Fashion Institute of Technology was founded in 1944 and is a public college in Manhattan, New York City. It is part of the State University of New York and focuses on art, business, design, mass communication and technology connected to the fashion industry.

The campus is spread over 9 buildings and includes classrooms, television and radio studios, labs, design workshops and multiple exhibition galleries. It also has a retail food court/dining hall, a Starbucks, a deli, two large theatres, a Barnes & Noble College Book store and a Conference Center with space suitable for conferences, fashion shows, lectures and other fashion related events.

Four dormitories, three of which are on-campus, serve approximately 2,300 students and offer a variety of accommodations. The George S. and Mariana Kaufman Residence Hall located at 406 West 31st Street – formerly a book bindery factory – was converted into residential apartments, to offer more housing near the campus for FIoT students.

If that wasn't enough, FIoT also has a Museum that was founded in 1969 as the Design Laboratory, includes collections of clothing, textiles, and accessories.

In the 1970s it began presenting exhibitions, utilizing a collection on long-term loan from the Brooklyn Museum of Art and then over time acquiring its own collection as well as thousands of textiles and other fashion-related material.

The FIoT Board of Trustees, noting the significance of the Design Laboratory’s collections and exhibitions, changed the institution's name to The Museum at FIoT in 1993. The Museum was awarded accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums In 2012.
