Today I turned into a real student... I went to class! We had Theoretical and Social Fashion Studies (TSFS) from 10:15-12:00 and took our first morning tube voyage to get to the High Holbern building. We got there about 45 minutes early because we allowed ourselves so much travel time. Definitely will be waking up half an hour later next Monday! Emannuel was our tutor and she spoke mostly of eco and ethical fashions today. At first she was highly amusing... see below for some of her quotes. After the break though she just seemed overly cynnical... hmm I'll just have to see how this class goes. She only lectures for the first few classes, so there will be a change in a month or so.
After TSFS we hopped back on the tube to meet at the main building for Start Your Own Fashion Magazine (SYOM). My teacher is pretty much awesome. His name is Paul and he has written for Love, French Vogue, and is assistant editor at a magazine that is set to launch at Paris Fashion Week. Basically, I want to be him. He took us to the magazine stand and told us to pick out an editorial that interests us. Of course I couldn't pick so I got Love, Lula and Commons&Sense. We then went to a cafe and talked about what this semesters classes will bring us.
I can't wait to go to class for the rest of the week... I know my other 5 will be as awesome as these two were.
