TGIAF

thank G-d it’s ALMOST Friday.

It has been a very exhausting, yet exciting week.

The past couple days at work have been very hectic and although it’s a stressful environment I work well under pressure so I kinda love this. Seeing what goes into fashion week is a great experience. The loads of invite requests, sample requests, sample returns, and people coming in and out of the office including publicists, stylists, editors, and so on blows my mind. The phone is ringing every 5 seconds, couriers are walking in and out every 2 minutes and everyone is are scrambling to get the samples ready the the returns put back in the showroom. The Chief Editor of Fashion for Elle UK was in the office yesterday – pretty cool! Also, someone came in to bring a few pairs of shoes that were pulled from the Dover Street Market for Rihanna to wear. There was a request for Blake Lively in one of the calls that I answered… fun stuff!

Today there was an urgent call in for bright block colored clothing to be sent to Harper’s Bazaar and I had to help get this together. This included collecting items from each of the account execs, picking some items from the showroom, scanning all of the items into GPS and of course packaging them all in about 15 minutes. There were a total of about 20 items including clothing, bags, and shoes. It was such a rush but I live for moments like that! Those are where I thrive and find that I learn the most.

The thing that I find with the fashion industry is that most of the people who work in it want to be there, so its quite a passionate (not to mention intense and competitive) environment. It’s very refreshing to work in a culture like that, because I’ve definitely worked in ones where people around me are simply miserable with their jobs and that definitely forms a negative vibe in the culture.

Tomorrow will probably be a bit crazy since invites need to be sent out on Monday – meaning either staying late tomorrow night or working some of Saturday. The work that goes into fashion week is unbelievable! Also, my best friend Jordy is in this weekend – so lots to look forward to. That’s it for now!
