First Year FCP

It feels crazy to think about, but my first year at FCP has just ended! I can't believe how fast it went by, and the realisation of it makes me both excited for second year and terrified of how quickly I will find myself dishing out ideas for my final year dissertation – yikes! On one hand I feel pretty impatient to make such a big step, especially when most of my friends who are my age have just finished their third year at uni whereas I'm just starting (because of travelling and gap year abroad and yada yada). On the other one, though, I don't know if I'm ready to leave the safe academic setting and make the big leap of faith into official adult world – not the make-believe adult world-limbo that students live in.

Either way, I thought I would share with you my first year portfolio which includes a selection and summary of what I've been up to this year. I have been uploading most of my work on my Issuu account throughout the year anyway, so if you'd like to see and/or read some of those works more in detail, you're welcome to do it there. In the meantime, here's an overview of what Fashion Communication & Promotion students can do here at Nottingham Trent – a combination of photography, trend research, street style, PowerPoints, InDesign reports, packaging mock-ups, and lots of Big Ideas (or find it at this link):

Hope you enjoy that while I sit here drowning in boxes and suitcases as I pack up all my stuff to leave Nottingham and the UK for the summer. I am flying back to Italy this Sunday to go back to my family (whom I haven't seen since Easter break!) and actually have an internship waiting for me at an amazing fashion company near where I live. More on that soon!
