Love of fashion
Wow I can't believe it's been over a month since my last blog. So much has happened but I feel its only fair I attack one subject at a time. :)
It truly has been a summer of loves and my classes have really catered to love.
Tonight I was overlooking the curriculum for the FIT Fashion Design One Year AA program. About a week ago, I decided to take my life into my own hands and stop fantasizing over fashion classes. I finally signed up for two, a sewing techniques class and a Fashion art and design.
I've had the FIT course description catalogue for over 2 years. I've been wanting to explore that side of my passions for some time. It was something I'd literally stare at every morning and flip through the pages imaging how awesome it'd be to take this class and that class.
If you haven't figured by now, I have a lot of interests in life. But my love of art/performance and fashion are none other.
I had actually been accepted into the Fashion Merchandise and Marketing program for Fall but backed out after much discussion with industry professionals that I would thrive as a designer rather than accounts/business person. I figured pushing the degree back a year is worth taking a few classes rather than throwing myself into debt and another degree that I don't absolutely love.
and I really love this one. I've only had two of each class and I'm already starting to feel so good about them. It's not like my undergrad where I was just breezing through blindly, not fully grasping assignments and doing the work last minute. I really understand the content and I'm actually feeling I can excel quickly. I practice sewing on the machine so I can walk into class and get A's on my assignment. I check and double check and triple check that I understand the instructions so I can have the perfect seams on my assignment.
Its crazy. But feels right.
and I'm not afraid.
in fact, I'm so excited.
