'If there was one thing I could tell my younger self, it would be to intern"

I have a new video out ! Have you subscribed to my YouTube channel ?

If after watching my video about apply to LCF has not altered your vision of becoming a student at LCF, or a communication based subject majoring with fashion as degree, now lets talk about wisdom before you actually acquire the knowledge of your field ( because as the great Robyn Fenty said,-)

A term that benefits this post, some may say that you don't need to intern, the economy is too tight to work for free in our generation. I get it, everybody understands and dare I say that it stands as a disgusting matter some overlook but it is what makes the skin harder.

If you have seen an advertisement for a PR role, you may have seen a line like ' no two days are the same' ; add in the back of your mind how also, no two days are worth the same. Sometimes you will be asked to come in on a Sunday morning (via text from your manager who is out of office, out of country for the weekend) and you have to therefore host your hangover in you heels running around London to pick up a look to send to another shoot because you actually don't know if your uber would be reimburse before payday.

These last minute, time consuming, nearly wanting to curse somebody but should you make a noise you will cry and mess up your make-up are invaluable experiences that no classroom or 30 slide presentation can show, so take the time to appreciate or rule out what you will and will not allow.

My personal opinion, take at least one and say you've done it

From Selfie to Self-Expression

As a child/student of fine art and criticising art for majority of my student life, I never aligned classical portraits with characteristics like vanity. Comparing to classical portraits dating back from the late 1400s with today's "selfie" with technology, you can clear see that the denomination of self-control takes place as clearly now as back then !

It's amazing how traditional method's within practicing art is still used in modern society but through different mediums. I did not do any research before entering the exhibition so I was pleased to see a wide range from my traditional favourites like Van Gogh, C├ęzanne and Frida Kahlo.

I encourage you all to visit (Ending July 23) and experience a rich exploration of the journey of self- portraiture.
