Happy birthday to me. On Tuesday, I’ll celebrate with my wonderful family with prerequisite cake and candles.
So, what’s changed over the last year?
Well, I have continued my studies at FIT and have learned a lot more about style, quality, fabric, finish, colour and so much more.
I had the amazing opportunity to work backstage at NY Fashion Week in February where I met so many of my classmates who also volunteered as dressers. I got up close and personal with gorgeous couture fashion from Oscar de la Renta, Marchessa, Reem Acra, 3.1 Philip Lim, Carolina Herrara, Badgely Mischka and more. It was surreal and exhilarating.
I had the opportunity to travel – Las Vegas for Black Friday (all night shopping – cool), Washington DC, Chicago, Phoenix and Toronto. I learned a lot.
I count myself very lucky. My incredible, wonderful husband encourages my fashion passion. He listens with interest as I gush over this designer or that. And, I hope we’ll be able to go to my convocation in New York when I graduate with my certificate in Image Consulting (only one course to go).
Seems I’ve learned a lot in the past year. What about you?
