Finally the time has arrived for me to leave my dull life and trade it for my amazing and interesting first FIT course for the spring! Much like the first day of school, I always stay up late trying on every piece of clothing in my closet looking for the most perfect outfit! I know many can relate to this so I know it’s not just me. Let’s face it – I’m not a morning person but when it comes to waking up to go to FIT I’m up and ready before my alarm even goes off. Even though I live in New Jersey, I am definitely a city girl at heart and will never miss an opportunity to be in this amazing city, even if I have to wake up much earlier than usual! This is my second course I will be taking at FIT and I must admit I still got nervous walking in and seeing everyone that I will be with for the next four weeks….nerve racking and exciting at the same time!
Once I got into my class and we all met each other, I knew this course was going to be fun! When everyone arrived, my Professor told us about herself and what projects we are going to be doing. After we all introduced ourselves our Professor explained the difference between an ad and an editorial in a magazine and the process of how the editorials are made. Then we were put into groups to make an inspiration board for a handbag that we are going to be doing a photo shoot for.
I made a lot of great new friends. We went to Fresh & Co. for lunch and walked around the city stopping at stores such as MOOD and a flower store buying props and backdrops for the photo shoot. I can’t wait to put it all together and have a great photo shoot! I am very excited for the weeks ahead!
