Finished my styling course. I learnt alot and made heaps of industry contacts. It was very inspiring to be admist so much love and passion.
I realised that my interest leans more towards fashion illustration than styling itself.
I have been volunteering at various careers fairs promoting the college I live in and it has been a fantastic way to give back as well as meet new people and see whats out there. Its how I find my current course and a few of the future course I want to do. It also gave me the opportunity to pass out my details and offer my services to fashion schools as a volunteer make up artist.
I am currently arranging to go spend a day shadowing a senior marketing executive for a large company. I was introduced through a friend and she has agreed to show me the ropes and watch her work. Should be a very insightful day.
I have spoken to an established make up artist who has given me her details and agreed to let me assist her on large shoots free of charge. And she also gave me a list of agencies to contact and offer to assist the people on their books.
Now I am just plugging away at all my goals and its slowly starting to come together!! Its a great feeling if not a little surreal. Writing it all down allows me to stay grounded and see how far I have come and still have to go..
