Everyone I am proud to announce that I will be attending Parsons the New School in NYC. I just found out today that I got accepted and it is a true blessing. Parsons is noted as the top fashion school in the U.S. and one of the top in the world!!! Pretty impressive huh?! Their notable alumni include Tom Ford, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu and more. I applied for the AAS program which is an associate degree. It is Intended for “mature” students who are looking for a degree change and has previous college credits. I swear this is the happiest moment of my 24 years on earth, all of the stress I went through for this, all of the other schools I really wanted to go to. To find out that I actually ended up at the top school in the country and one of the top in the world is quite an accomplishment. My friends and family are soooo proud of me!!!! Shoot I’m proud of myself!!!!!! I wanted to show you guys one of the things that got me into that school, my creative assignment. It was do a collage of the type of person you would like to design for (or dress I forget) and I did a romantic theme.
You know how I want a career in fashion right?? If you didn’t know now you do! It was an epiphany that came to me back in like 2011, why it took me so long to realize what I was made for I don’t know. Now I am a 23 year old (be 24 in Oct.) trying to go off to school. There are five schools I am looking to apply; Parson New School, Fashion Institute of Technology, Pratt Institute, Philadelphia University, and Moore College of Art and Design. Parsons and FIT are my top choices since they are the best in the world. Located right in one of the fashion capitals, the city that never sleeps NYC. So to get ready to apply I’ve been building up my portfolios. Oh I am going into fashion design if I did not mention, but like I said any career in fashion would make me happy. Anyway I am going to share to everyone some of my sketches. Alot aren’t finished and I am an okay artist so they are decent.
Now hopefully I finish these soon and you all can see the full collections to them : ).
