As Coco Chanel once said, “I don’t do fashion, I am fashion.” Embracing who we are is important. We all have to start somewhere, and for me, it was my childhood love for writing. The exciting buzz of letters and words creatively forming in my head like a picture. My desire to be constantly writing was one that people found unusual, so using this talent I pursued my aspiration to be a journalist.
As technology has advanced through the years, alongside the pace of news and fashion, it only makes sense that journalism too has had to follow. Becoming a multi-platform fashion journalist is how I want to express and broadcast the latest trends and new designers, on a range of platforms. Allowing a wider audience to view online with the inclusion of interactive media. I intend to make progress with my continuous blog to demonstrate this, showing I am versatile for future employers.
“To be critical means to achieve.” My diary is my number one priority, so being organised with work and sticking to my deadlines is definitely my strong point. My writing voice is highly descriptive which can sometimes be to my advantage. I intend to practice my writing skills in this unit, to tackle long, complex sentences. Each week, I will use the tasks set in seminars to focus on the quality of my work by getting into the habit of proofreading.
