UPDATE:University and Fashion Internships

Thursday, 9 June 2016

Just a little introduction incase you're new here! I'm currently studying Fashion Design with Marketing and Production at The University of Huddersfield, although I'm studying a primarily design based course I'm hoping to pursue a career in Fashion Marketing/PR because although I love designing, my hearts just not in it as much as Marketing. As part of my course we have the option to undertake a year out in Industry, this is something that I am doing so over the past month I've been trying to get all this sorted! I think that covers everything.. so on with the updates!

To say a lot has changed in the past month is a bit of an understatement. I handed in all of my coursework for University on the 6th May, so I have completely finished my second year! Fingers crossed for the results now! 

After that I've had interviews, trial shifts and a photoshoot at University (these are the photos that you see here, this is the dress that I made for one of the modules in my course. Overall I'm really happy with the outcome because sewing and design is not my strong suit!) I accepted an offer for a couple of placements, one here in Huddersfield as a studio assistant and one in Leeds at a bridal boutique doing some Social Media and Marketing Work. But because these are unpaid placements (if you've ever tried to look for fashion internships you will know just how hard it is to find ones that are paid) I've had to get a part time job as well to help me out financially. After a couple of interviews I got a job at H Samuels as a sales associate and I started a couple of weeks ago. I'm still settling in and I have a million things to learn but everyone seems lovely and it'll be good to have the extra pennies. 

I also started my first placement at a label called Me and Thee on Monday. I've definitely been thrown in the deep end but I know it will all be worth it and I'll learn so much whilst I'm there! I don't want to go into too much detail about the placement because I'm thinking of doing a mini series here, where I'll do a summary of what I've been doing/what I've learnt every couple of weeks. What do you think?

I've also signed the lease for my next place, I'm moving to a lovely little studio in August sometime which I'm so excited about, I can't wait to buy a few new home decor bits and make it all pretty! 

I think thats all for now! But make sure you follow me on twitter because I'll post more updates on there! 

With Love; Em x
