Fashion Show Mayhem and a Temp...3
If I could portray the squeals and screams of joy that have come out of my mouth this week in writing I would. Because there have been a lot. I just took a trip to Rome.
It was for business, of course. With the hectic few week’s we’ve had preparing for the big fashion show, we’ve been getting clothing and accessories from all over. One top designer, who resides in Rome at the moment, had some items for us to collect, but didn’t trust them to be shipped. Instead, he requested we pick them up in Italy. I was one of the lucky two to be selected to make the trip and take responsibility for the items.
Have I ever mentioned how much I absolutely love my job? While there are times when things are hectic and crazy, it’s absolutely amazing how much I get to experience and the life I get to live, especially on those days when I get to actually sit back and watch the magic happen.
Those are the days when I learn the most about the ever-changing world of fashion. If I’m lucky, I get to actually talk to the models being photographed and hear their take on the latest and greatest options to choose from. If not, I just watch them and learn for myself.Read More
I think this fashion show mayhem and lack of sleep has finally gotten to me. For some reason last night, I agreed to go out on a date with someone my friend from work knows. Yes, I know I swore off dating and men, but it’s been a long week I thought I deserved to be pampered just a bit. Plus, I honestly needed a reason not to crawl into my pyjamas and sleep for 18 hours straight.
So, I went on the date.Read More
Guess who has a job title?? This girl!
Okay, so it’s only temporary because this week has been crazy, but I’ll take what I can get. I am (for now) a stylist’s assistant.
Yes, go me.
The reason things have been absolute mayhem and I have my new temporary job title is the designer I’ve been working for is putting together a fashion show. I can’t tell you where it’s going to be of course, because the reason I created this blog was so that I could discuss life and work anonymously and without breaking my confidentiality agreement. Saying anything specific would simply ruin that. I can tell, you, though, that it’s going to be brilliant.Read More
When I first moved to London, I heard the term “Londoner” while visiting the bar Ben works at. I thought I understood the term then, imagining everything I had envisioned London and its people to be. Coming back from the shops the other day, however, as I swayed on a tube that was packed, as my father would say, “like a can of sardines,” I began to realise my impression of what a Londoner is had changed. And I, in fact, might actually be one now.
I proposed this to Ben when I arrived back at our flat, and he simply laughed, stating that I’d been a Londoner for quite some time. I just hadn’t put the pieces together.Read More
