If given the chance to work in any industry I like, I would definitely choose the fashion industry. Because I am in love with the fashion world, I would love to be a stylist, model (definitely no chance there!), or a makeup artist. Getting into the industry, however, is not easy. The jobs I mentioned are not conventional. I believe it takes some courage and loads of talent to be successful in those careers. Moreover, the success you reap are entirely dependent on your persistence, public relations skills, and chance. That mix scares me.
On one hand, I am a very pragmatic person who likes taking the tried and tested path up the career ladder. On the other, my more creative side is dying for attention. Right now, however, I’m not yet ready for a complete change but I am nevertheless glad for opportunities that let me dabble in my true passions.
Last September 15, the Araneta Center invited me and other fashion bloggers to participate in a fashion styling event where we were given the opportunity to dress Miss Universe Philippines 2012 Janine Tugonon, Bb. Pilipinas-International Nicole Schmitz, Bb. Pilipinas-Tourism Katrina Dimaranan, Bb. Pilipinas 2012 2nd Runner-up Annalie Forbes, and Miss International 2011 Semi-Finalist Dianne Necio, and male models from Next Models.
Like true stylists, we went around participating shops in Gateway Mall and SM Cubao Department Store to pull out clothes for models. I was partnered with Rhea of Bebe-doll.net and our challenge was to dress two models (Nicole Schmitz and Colin Smith) in one hour and do a photo shoot after.
Tadaaaa! The result:
What do you guys think? Not bad for a first attempt, I hope. 🙂
