I am on a journey to live a life I love and to fill my life with the things that truly bring me joy... my dream job, loving relationships, financial abundance, a healthy mind and body, and a deep spiritual connection with all that is. I am living consciously to create a life filled with all the things I love.

Fashion Design School

It's been a while since my last post since fashion design school has kept me super busy! Who knew that you could pull all-nighters in the first two weeks of school. It shows my commitment to this process, and although I want to live a "balanced" life, I also know I need to do what it takes to "make it work," like Tim Gunn says. So far even though the workload is incredulous, it has been a great experience. I feel like I've been in school for months, but it has only been 1 month. Wow.

I'm taking 9 classes, as are many others who are trying to finish this program in one year. It is crazy. Yes, very crazy, but I'm enjoying every step of the process. I know that this will be my final career direction because I enjoy every step this time. Each class is teaching me a completely different skillset to round me out as a fashion designer. I am taking Fashion Drawing, CAD Photoshop and Illustrator (for designing prints and textiles and fashion related promotional materials), a fashion illustration course with more sketching, creating mood boards, drawing flats, and rendering, Fashion Industry Process and Skills (includes everything from fashion history to finding our own inspiration to studying companies and creating our promotional materials), Sewing, Draping, Patternmaking, Fashion Marketing, and Color Theory.

It's a lot of work for sure! Here are some photos of some of the work rooms at school:
