For the past 3,5 years I have been studying Fashion design in Paris at ESMOD. The 3rd year I specialised in Costume design, but still didn't get much introduction to that world because the school is so fashion focused. For moments i have regretted not going to a performance art school but now I just have to go forward and make the best if it. I graduated in October and moved temporarily back to Iceland. The plan is to move to London as soon as it's safe.
British period dramas are my favourite, like Bridgerton and The Musketeers.
What I'm allowing to hold me back right now is how little I know about 'how to get a job in this field', like who to talk to and where to 'send my resume'. I'm so excited to start my trainee and assistant experiences and learn from the best in the field.
