Milan Fashion Week Survival Guide…

Fashion Week is nearly upon us here in Milan.  My schedule is filling up with cool events and presentations and I am getting really excited about what the week has in stall .  When I am not shooting, a lot of my schedule is spent working at home and online, so I love using Fashion Week as an opportunity to attend loads of events and shows around the city, visit cool exhibitions, check out new bars and catch up with people in town for the week.  I always think the city comes alive during Fashion Week and I love the energy and buzz that comes with that.

The Positives & Negatives to Building your Fashion Career Abroad

I recently took part in an interview for my former university magazine about what it is like building my fashion career while living abroad.  The reason I took part in the interview was because moving to Italy (and the extensive traveling I did before university) are some of the most important experiences I have had and have helped to shape me as a person.  I hoped that by speaking about my positive experience it would encourage anyone considering studying or working abroad to pursue their dream, because it really can lead you to wonderful places.  In the interview I spoke a lot about how studying abroad and afterwards moving abroad to pursue a career in fashion has changed my life and led to so many positive developments, both professionally and personally.

With this in mind I have decided to include on here a list of the positives and negatives of living and working abroad to give more advise to anyone who is thinking about making the jump.  In regards to the ‘negatives’ section, I have included this because I think it is important to give a balanced description of what to expect when moving abroad.  Generally my experience here has been incredible, but it isn’t always sunshine and fun, and so I think it is important to be real.  I hope you find it helpful, and if you want anymore advise about building your fashion career abroad, please get in touch in the comment below!
