"Go. Go and stand before things that are bigger than yourself."
Now that I've had a chance to let the dust settle on the experience, knowledge and information I've been so graciously given over the last month in Paris, I'm only now able to summarize my life’s new shift in direction.
As a writer, I'm finding it extremely difficult to find the words to express my gratitude to all the people I've met in the last month at the Paris Fashion Institute. The only functioning statement I can say to express exactly the experience I've had would be this- if you are ready to change your life, to never look back, and are ready to surpass your career expectations, this is the seminar for you.
I came to this course ready to make it happen for myself, was extremely motivated, and here with an agenda. I can only truthfully speak from this place- as I didn't just graduate, my parents didn't pay for me, nor did I come to just get drunk on cheap wine. This was a life-changing month for me, and it only surpassed my expectations.
Exceeding the elite educational material of the program is a woman who is willing to help her "kids" out. The fairy godmother of fashion herself, Joan P. White, has a little black book bigger than a New York City phonebook- and she wants to show it to you. She will tell you exactly how it is, and if there's something that would make sense for you, you'll have it. And that's just the way it is. Don't ask questions- it just is.
In this city, with my fairy godmother looking out for me, it's fair for me to say to myself
"You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling!"
A special thanks to all the wonderful people I've met during the seminar- I'll be seeing you. x
