doesn't it seem like a first date?

aren’t first days of class seem like a first date? 
when you are all observant, hesitant, excited and nervous all at once?? 

As  a full pledged fashion apprentice for the great Luis Espiritu

 I wore this on my first day
 Thinking of comfort and style I chose to wear this pair of shorts I got from Pink Manila and paired it with my      trusty button down from Topshop. The nude wedges from Tint was the choice over my other pairs since it gives me the boost without me having to worry about toppling over. And one must always have a statement piece - my personalized speedy was gladly up to the job! 

with my classmates (missing 2) before lunch break
arrived early after lunch and ended up waiting in the corridor for a good 20 mins. apparently we shouldn't really be on time much more be early

so when you are bored what to do but to pose

So what did we learn on our first day???

1. Masking tapes are a must. We learned how to tape the soles of shoes since they are usually borrowed and must be returned in tip top condition. 
2. Beware of the steamer! It did give us all a scare. It was drippy and emits seriously hot steam  (well duh!) but sometimes you cannot help but be all careless. I kept pointing it at my partner's poor face =(
3. Editorial pieces are created for the sole purpose of being shot on magazines. You can do whatever with them! As according to our teacher, you can burn them, get them wet etc. but since the region shares one piece I think one must still exercise caution don't you think? (correct me if there is more than one piece)
4. Must not feel awkward when models dress in front of you. Hmm.. this is so tough for me. I have such a strict guideline for what constitutes private space. 
5. Clamping clamping clamp clamp does wonders =) you know the things you use for handouts in school yep you put them at the back of the dress to accentuate the figure of the model =)

I could go on but nothing really beats being there and watching these professionals do their thing. Maybe their talent will just rub off on me =))
