New York City was hit with about 18 inches so far, and despite an army of plows/salt machines, the roads [and sidewalks] are still treacherous. New Jersey and Brooklyn are even worse; hence, school was closed for the day. I have to go out in the weather down to Soho in a bit, but I thought I’d take advantage of some spare time to type something up.
After an elongated, and much needed, winter break, we started up a month ago in full force. Since I’ll be technically graduating from F.I.T. this May, all of our classes are very intensive. I have eight classes, all which require top-level performance. One of my classes in particular has placed high emphasis on the end of the year exhibition. This year’s theme for the 1-yr AAS students is Valentino. We essentially came up with 50 designs inspired by the works of Valentino Garavani over break, met with a critic to narrow it down to one, and are now in the process of creating these opulent pieces. Only half of the students’ work will be selected to be shown in the exhibition, so it’s quite competitive!
But first the snow has to stop! Haha. It looks absolutely gorgeous – and don’t get me wrong I love snow days that you don’t need to make up – but I’m itching for spring. Our spring break is the last week of March, so hopefully it will be splendidly warm by then. I’ll try and write another post around that time as well – until then, I miss you all, and enjoy your own spring break in a week or so!
