If you, like me, lost your career because of the coronavirus and are looking to train for a different career, I want to congratulate you for not giving up on yourself and for having that entrepreneurial spirit that is pushing you to create something new for yourself and others.
I have chosen to train as a fashion stylist. This is new to me. I love clothes, accessories and a good bargain. For years I looked at online courses to become a fashion stylist, but believe me, they were expensive. There was one priced at over 1,000 pounds, and that really put me off. I didn’t have that kind of money to spend so I gave up.
However, I recently saw a heavily discounted course and decided it was worth investing in.
I find the material easy to read and very inspiring so I decided to write a blog about what I am learning and understanding. I want to have fun sharing my experience with others.
I discovered that becoming a fashion stylist does not mean you have to be born with the gift of seeing patterns and colours, you don’t have to know instantly how fabrics complement one another, you don’t even have to know how to talk about clothes. If you were born with those gifts, all I can say is I’m super jealous of you right now.
When I was a little girl, I used to draw dresses of the 1950s. I just loved doing it. Then I grew up, and instead of pursuing a career that might have been something special, I went into the beauty industry. However, I still watched all the classic movies: ‘Down With Love’ ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ ‘Coco Before Chanel etc. I loved the chic style, the class, the elegance.
I want to bring something of that passion and love for these blog posts.
