CAREER IN FASHION?

Cromwell Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW7 2RL, UK

How many times have you heard the cliché "I want to work in fashion because I really like fashion"!? Probably like hundred times, right? I have said it couple times too before I actually realised that the reality is different.
Before I came to university, my idea of future was me having a glamorous fashion career in London or New York. (The Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City had a massive impact on me back then I guess). I clearly had no idea what sort of realistic career in fashion I would want. It was just my interest, I did not come across anything fashion-related in high school, I had no portfolio, so on and so forth. But at least I had something to enjoy as a teenager. But let's face it, your teen dream of being another editor of Vogue is slightly unreal.

Christmas Mood?

London, UK
November has just begun and I have appeared in a café at the airport to get my regular cup of coffee before my flight. I am sitting next to the main corridor and looking at the busyness of this place. But something is different this time. It is the music in the background. It seems like it is socially acceptable to put the Christmas music playlist once the calendar hits 1st November. Yes, all the famous Christmas carols and festive songs. To be completely honest with you, I am a bit sceptical about getting in the mood for Christmas now. Growing up in a country where Christmas season for me was mostly indicated with the first snow as well as with the first Sunday of Advent, it is hard to get into the mood now. There is no snow. Okay, I must admit that it is freezing cold outside, but it is still not as cold as during proper winter. However, it has all changed when I had my last sip of coffee and Coldplay’s song “Christmas Lights” started playing. My all-time favourite song. It never feels too early for this one. So suddenly I look around and wonder where all these people go?
