Fashion Intern Interviews' & Meetings' - What to Wear?

My very short fashion career so far has been a whirlwind of adventure, hard work, life lessons and endless hours of throwing clothing across my room trying to decipher the perfect outfit. This week I was to meet with Alan White, the drummer from Oasis, at his Muse property just off Sloane Square, London. The reason for this was because he is selling on his £8million property and requested I had some of my photography work displayed on his very expensive walls whilst trying to find buyers. This was an opportunity of a lifetime, yet I was quite nervous and embarrassingly enough I was fretting over what I'd wear. We've all been there.

The reason for being so concerned with an outfit, (as some of you will know) isn't just about what that individual will think. It isn't about being shallow or vain. It's about potential work in the future. I'm sure Alan probably couldn't care less about what I was wearing, but there were may other people there to network with, and making a good first impression is the difference between getting the job and future work or not.

So here's how my day went, what I chose to wear as well as my tips on how to choose the perfect outfit for a meeting/interview and whether wearing a neon pink beanie was really a good idea...

6 Things I Wish I Knew when I was Studying Fashion

I know quite a few of my blog readers haven't actually finished university yet, or are still yet to go to university. I was talking with a friend the other day about how much freedom we had, and if we could go back, how we'd make the most of it. Some of these points are trivial, and probably personal to myself, but some of the points I cannot stress enough. Pre-Uni students, here's a little bit of advice for you. As for you Post-Grads, you may agree with me, or you may have other things you wish you knew - let us know! 
So here we go; 6 Things I wish I knew when I was at uni...
