Fashion week!

I MADE IT!!!

I actually managed to attend fashion week in February, never would I miss this especially since I missed LCM in January.

The only problem was that with a week left for fashion week I completely forgot, and hadn’t planned any outfits, but I quickly realised that the outfit I wore didn’t matter, I was there to hang out with friends and make new ones.

The first day I went very simple (all black), at first I was quite nervous but I quickly got into the flow of things and started to bump into people I knew from the previous year.

For the first time ever I managed to get into shows!! I actually managed to do at least one/two shows a day in fact; I honestly still can’t believe it.

Day two was the day of the #Skwad, since it was Saturday this was by far the busiest day and probably the most fun! It was nice to just be surrounded by creative people, who love fashion and to play around with clothing it was truly inspiring.

The third day I done all black (again!), it was a quieter day compared to Saturday but it was still nice as some people still came over just to say hi and hit a few shows.

Monday was like the deadest day! Haha you could slowly see the crowds dwindling down, for most part of the day I just wandered around, once it hit around 4pm it got busier and more people showed up.

Tuesday was by far the most pointless day, and this point no-one was there and in fact me and my friend need up going to a gallery and just had a regular day out!

Starting University

So I recently started University in September (the day after Fashion Week). I made the mistake of thinking since I was going to an “art only campus” that it would basically be like Hogwarts and it would be this magical creative space where everyone was just the friendliest most crazy people!

Unfortunately I forgot that not everyone who goes to an art school is necessarily an artists, people go to uni for all kinds of reasons and sometimes pick subjects they aren’t passionate about.

Even though it was slightly difficult at the beginning I’m slowly starting to realize my potential and I’m starting to figure out exactly what I want to do in this world! Even though its very much early days I’m happy with my choice of course and campus and I feel I can really thrive in this environment.

Even though there are like a hundred different people who don’t think much of me and want me to fail instead of letting this destroy me inside like it used to, I use this as an excuse to work harder and be more ambitious with my projects!

Even though I may not have many skills as of yet, I am hopeful for the future and I know that as long as I give it my all and work hard, I can do anything I want!
