New Year, Same Dreams

When i think about the new year, I am terrified and excited and anxious and confident all at the same time. I have no idea what lies ahead of me but at least i;m going to be pursuing something i am passionate about and I cant wait till i land in Cape Town on the 25th ^_^ JOY!
It is such a thrill not knowing what you are getting yourself into, im jumping hoping i land on my feet and most of all stay true to myself. Happy New Year!

According to the e-mail I got a week ago it would take them 2 weeks to process my application, and by Gods grace It took them 1 week. As I was opening the letter from them I swear i almost passed out and I only had to read 6 words before I started jumping up and down  "We are pleased to inform you..". Woop! Fedisa here I come.
I honestly cannot wait until next year, I have a feeling it is gonna be AWESOME and beyond :)

While I wait... a lttle tribute

So while i wait for my response (which is coming in the next two weeks) i have decided to do dedications to designers that I love and inspire me. Starting with non other than Girovani Valentino.
I think i first heard of Valentino when i was around 10 and my mom came back from Mauritius with this beautiful silk scarf and the label stood out to me because the name kind of looked like mine.
One of my many Favourites from his 2007 Couture collection
Soon after when Fashion TV was available i used to sit  at the screen and zone in everytime there was a Valentino show. The magical elegance in his gowns hypnotized me and when the signature red dress walked down the runway... i was in love. Throughout my teenage years i decided i would measure my success by how many Valentino gowns i owned and my heart broke when he retired in 2008 (i literally wore black to symbolize my mourning). Thankfully because of the strong foundation he built the brand still lives on in carrying that unmistakable Valentino glamour.

Saying goodbye surrounded by a sea of beauties in Red

First exam written. 3 more to go and one step closer till im done with this chapter in my life! Can't wait.

Change is good, and it's inevitable so i'm planning to welcome it with open arms :) And hopefully the future is as bright as June Ambroses' (yes my grammar there is messed up) outfit in the pic below :P

In the making...

In the midst of studying for exams (or trying to) I had the last photoshoot to do. The day didn't start off well since under some unforseen circumstances, there was no camera to start with. However with a few phone calls and my secret weapon, Priscilla, plans were ready to be initiated :)

Doreen, before she started shooting:
 The last two outfits done! Bikini and Evening blouse and Skirt. Can't wait to see the professional photos ^_^ joy

Not quite there yet

After a long day of standing in bank queues and searching half the town for peacock feathers the application is FINALLY handed in, now all i have to do is wait and get back to reality. I still have an economics degree to complete and now is the time when i need to be focused... yet i'm busy starting new blogs :-/
I guess sometimes we have to remember the future depends on the present... and presently i have a lot of studying to catch up on! Real talk

Starting Afresh

So I had already gotten accepted into A Fashion School, but the more research I did, the more I realized i wanted to go to another. So here we go again with the application process... they better have a spot for me or else that may be awkward. My floor is a mess from all the cut outs and stuff -_-
