I am so excited to announce that I am finally back! I have missed having a creative space and a place to share my thoughts. So much has changed over these past two months, take a look below to see what I have been up to.
Since my last post I have moved to Virginia where I am attending a small liberal arts college nestled between the Appalachian mountains. I have not even been here a month, and I am already in love with this place, these people, my classes, the mountains and all the amazing opportunities that are coming my way.
Instead of a personal style blog I would like to focus more on making this into a place for all types of photography. I want to show you a piece of my life with every picture, and allow you all to feel like a part of the adventure. I can't wait to see where this blog goes over the next few months, but for now welcome back!
If the title of this post didn't give it away, I have decided to take a break from blogging for a bit. Many things in my life are changing, and I do not feel as though I will be able to put the amount of effort into this blog as I would like. Thank you all for joining me on this adventure, I appreciate all of the support that I have received over the past two and a half years. This is not the end of The Adventures of S, I will be back in a matter of days, weeks or maybe even months, I guess only time will tell. But for now, see you soon...
Earlier this year I entered a contest with the Australian dress company, Fame and Partners and surprisingly I won the grand prize! In May, I designed a prom dress with the company, which was super cool, I was able to learn about the design process and how to create something unique. The second part of my prize was a week long internship with ASOS US in New York City, which I did over the course of last week. For those of you who don't know about ASOS, it is an online retailer based out of London that has some really cool clothes, everyone should check out, here. I had a blast spending the week in the city, learning about the brand and all the different facets it takes to run a company like that. ASOS is unique in their approach with costumers, they offer different things such as the Daily Destination which is designed to pull people in and get them involved and interacting with the brand and the fashion world.
Over the course of the week I did many different things, mostly comparing ASOS to their competitors through their approach to social media. I was also able to pull clothes from the show room for different magazines and publications. Towards the end of the week I spent some time lurking outside of mens fashion week to grab some street style photographs. This internship was an amazing opportunity and something that I am extremely grateful for. I learned a ton about the company, and the fashion world as a whole.
