Hey everyone! I hope your Christmas holidays have all started really well, mine certainly have. Over the past two days I have been in London on a Fashion Careers course at the Fashion and Textile Museum. When i first signed up to take part in this course i wasn't really sure what to expect, and to be honest I wasn't quite sure what i'd be doing on the course. However i have got to say, after being there for an hour I knew this course was going to be something special! Throughout the two days, our course teacher gave us information on a variety of jobs in the Fashion Industry in order to help us decide what path we want to take and gave us tips on how to prepare for interviews and what to write in our CVs.
In addition to this, one of my favourite parts was that she had invited various people in the fashion industry to come in and talk to us about their jobs. On Day One, we had a costume designer come in named Lucy Donawho who's latest project was working on the newest Sherlock Holmes movie (How cool?!). On day two we had three other people come in, someone who worked in PR, a student at London College of Fashion and a lady who was a garment technologist for Amanda Wakeley. They were all so inspirational and gave us such good tips!
I have got to say if you are someone who would love to work in the fashion industry but doesn't know what exactly to do, this course is definitely for you! I absolutely loved it and came away from it knowing what I want to do now and having made new friends. I would definitely recommend it especially as the first course you take there is free (woo!)
