Goodbye!

Well it seems we’ve come full circle… it’s the end – we’ve finished precollege classes, only to hopefully for most of us start back up again in a little while. This Precollege semester at FIT has been truly a blast. I think I definitely made the right decision to take the Ins and Outs of Fashion Merchandising.

We ended our class with a final project just on the aesthetics of a brand of our choice and how they and their look make them different per se. (I did Saint Laurent) I really do feel I’ve learned a lot of genuinely interesting things that will impact my future and the choices I make for myself. If anyone hasn’t taken this class yet I suggest you do! After taking this class I’m highly considering this as a possible future for me. I still want to try out other areas in the fashion industry – that’s the beauty of these Precollege classes! I think up next for me is perhaps the Fashion PR workshop at the end of June and the Advertising and Marketing Communications class in the fall.

I really enjoyed this semester, my class got on very well, I’ve made some really great friends, and I learned and had fun with things that I enjoy and interest me highly. It was a great time and I’m going to miss it! It was nice to have something to look forward to during the week. I’m sure other students reading this know what I mean – at least I hope, I mean obviously I’ve enjoyed my time at FIT these past weeks but I do really do hope though that everyone else has as well.

Anyway I’m not sure quite how to end this blog post. I’ve had a great time being able to blog on here! After this experience I really would like to take up blogging – like with a fashion/lifestyle type of thing! Who knows! But I did really have fun writing these posts. Thanks to whoever has read and to my fellow bloggers as well, I’ve really enjoyed reading all of your posts over the past few weeks.

Have a nice summer everyone – hope to be back at FIT soon!

Best wishes,

Catherine

Hi everyone! Well, the last week of classes is upon us [ insert crying face emoji here ]. I can’t believe how fast the spring semester of Precollege classes went. It feels like just yesterday I was sitting at my desk nervously writing my first blog post. Although my Fashion Merchandising course is coming to an end and I am going to miss everyone I have met and miss going to classes on Saturdays, I am also really excited to take my summer course. I think I am really going to enjoy the Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management course.

I am also really excited to share that I will be continuing to blog for the summer semester! I will be writing blog posts from time to time until the summer semester starts and throughout my summer Precollege class! I can’t wait to share my new adventure with you all! Makeup has always been a passion of mine and I am super psyched to start taking this course.

The last thing I wanted to share with you all is my end of the semester project! We all got to pick a brand and we had to make a mood board and write a short essay about it. I am going to insert a picture of my finished mood board so you all can see it! I’m really glad I choose to take the Ins and Outs of Fashion Merchandising as my first course because it made my love for fashion even stronger than it already was. I HIGHLY recommend this Precollege course to anyone who thinks that they are interested in pursuing a career in this field in the future.

Thank you guys for reading my blog posts throughout this spring semester!

Bye ( for now at least)
