F I D M
So I am sooo excited to be starting classes at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising) in January. I just got accepted last week and I could not be happier. The campus is in such a cool area, downtown LA... I almost feel like I'm in New York City when I'm there (plus palm trees & beautiful weather all year round of course). I'm going to be majoring in Visual Communications, which is such a creative, hands on major and is perfect for fashion bloggers and aspiring stylists.
Students in this major get to collaborate on real-world projects with many industry professionals, like Anthropologie, Warner Bros, Saks Fifth Avenue, and more. I know this school will do great things for me and I cannot wait to take advantage of all of the amazing opportunities offered there. FIDM has a career center that helps students in finding part–time positions in their respective fields. I'd love to intern for a fashion magazine, preferably Teen Vogue, since I want to do something that combines both fashion & writing.
If you didn't know from watching "The Hills", Lauren Conrad attended FIDM and interned at Teen Vogue while she was there - I'd die to follow in those footsteps, literally. One of my favorite bloggers, Jules from Sincerely Jules, also went there and majored in Visual Communications, and she says that this particular major has a wide variety of different career opportunities compared to all of the other majors offered at FIDM. With VCom, she says, you can work in event planning, window displays, visual merchandising, and wardrobe styling. So as you can tell, I'm full of excitement and am counting down the days until I start FIDM. Just wanted to give you guys an update about what's in store for me for the next 2 years. Happy Monday everyone, xx!!
