I Got In! London for Spring 2013!

November 20, 2012

Post image for I Got In! London for Spring 2013!

Four years ago, I had no idea that I’d be a South Floridian girl in New England, let alone a South Floridian girl in old England. I’ve been trying to keep it under wraps, but now I’m happy to share with you guys that I got into Central Saint Martins for their study abroad program! CSM is the world’s top-tier fashion design school that hails greats such as Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Zac Posen, M.I.A.(!!!), and the list goes on. Now I’m not saying that I’m anywhere near as talented as these wonderful designers (and musician, haha), but I mean, I go to school so that I can learn how to be the best that I can be. So we’ll see what comes out of this!

Technically speaking, I’m not going into their fashion design school but enrolling in their Graphic Design program, which encompasses illustration. Fashion illustration is something my own school lacks so I’m so enthralled that I’m able to go to the best place I possibly can to learn something so specific.

So, starting this January, Those Things They Said will be operating out of London and I couldn’t be any happier. I can’t wait to be able to share my experiences with you all and I’m glad you guys are along for the ride. Between Facebook friends/fans and Blog/Instagram/Twitter followers, thank you for your support! I can’t help but feel that this blog had opened so many doors for me and it wouldn’t be possible without your encouragement.

I’ll be back in the US in April or May. Just in time for me to be ridiculously homesick, haha.
