Yes, it’s been quite a while since i last posted something here…i’m really sorry about that. But i can assure you that i will post more consistently from now on. I will be back at uni soon and have lots of events that i will be attending which i want to share with you.
So, i’ve completed my first year at uni studying Fashion Buying Management and i can’t believe how fast time goes. I’ve learnt many things over the year, I’ve realised that there are things that i love about what im doing and things that i simply hate…ultimately i’ve realised that fashion is an industry that is easy to fall in and out of love with. But i believe that’s natural…human beings are very fickle, fashion itself is fickle…we love something and then when we’ve had too much of it we hate it and then much later we love it all over again.
I chose this field because i was attracted to the creativity aspect and thought because creativity is subjective, it must be difficult to get things wrong. In fact the industry is very corporate and often pretentious. Now some people love that, some people thrive under those conditions however, i think for me it’s something that I’ve accepted but haven’t quite adjusted to. I’m not saying that i don’t like what i do, i definitely do…somtimes i come out of my lectures feeling blown away. Learning about the influence of the industry, learning about the birth and evolution of trends…it’s amazing. Definitely amazing. I just don’t think it’s right to paint a pretty picture of the industry as it is often portrayed as being. It’s easy to get things wrong and lose track of what you’re doing. But there’s no question that fashion has and always will be relevant.
I look forward to the experiences of second year and sharing those experiences with you.
Much Love, Pav.
