Wednesday was the second to last day of class at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and already everyone at school was already feeling sad about leaving. Today all of the final projects were due and presented. For my class, The Ins and Outs of Fashion Merchandising, I had to write a paper and create a supplementary PowerPoint about one major trend of Summer 2013. We had to analyze the trend in terms of color, fabric, details, prints, patterns, and more. I found it was a really eye-opening project because it made me able to spot certain trends in magazines, in stores, and on the streets. I guess I did the project well because I got an A- on it!! *cue the applause*
After class, my sister and I spent some time in Times Square! It’s fun to have some quality sister time every once and a while. We ran around to all of the good stores and made fun of confused tourists who fumbled with their enormous maps (it was totally LOL worthy!). Times Square is such a cool place and it’s a lot of fun whether you’re a tourist or a New Yorker.
Once we left Times Square, my sister and I met up with a few FIT girls with whom we’ve gotten really close to over the course of the month from FIT. Girls from all over the globe enroll in the FIT summer programs, so you want to spend all of the time with them as you can! The six of us grabbed a quick dinner at Juniors, then we had delicious Baked by Melissa cupcakes for desserts, and chatted throughout the whole night. You can never go wrong with Melissa’s!!
