Attending F.I.T. is pretty awesome and has awarded me some really cool opportunities. Attending Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, internships at design houses, and even much more. All that and more can be yours with much hard work, patience, and sacrifice. Here is my life by the numbers.
32: The number of fashion shows attended between freshman and senior year
5: Personal days claimed per semester for each class
3: Industry related jobs held in between programs
100: Professional connections made yearly
1: Nervous breakdown
The fashion show component of my semester is going well. Today was the fitting and I was totally taken aback, none the less relieved when my garment draped perfectly on the fit model. No alterations needed! Next step, cutting out the fabric, sourcing notions and trims, and lastly, getting some sleep. Dark days are ahead, but the work WILL pay off come May. Ciao fashionistas!
