Throwback – Wanderlust in France

I can’t believe it has already been a year since I went to France. (Warning: Picture Heavy)

The trip came at a pretty hectic time in my life and I wasn’t sure I could handle it with all the assignments we had been given for Spring “break”. We left the day break started and came back the night before it ended. My friend, Phuong, and I had signed up for this class together as the only two apparel program students and we struggled to keep up with the class. When we got there, though? Well, honestly, I can’t tell you I didn’t get stressed along the way but I wouldn’t trade the experience or the all nighter I pulled coming home for anything. 

That spring break was a lot different than the one I experienced this year. For one thing, that one SINGLE all nighter is like a piece of cake in comparison to preparing for a full collection show this break.

I took a breather for myself tonight and reminisced. The amazing architecture, nature, Paris at night, the art in everything that exists, and the fashion that comes out of France has inspired me and reminded me why I work so hard to get somewhere and why put so much into everything I do and create. It reminds me why I love my major.
The only downside?
I’m feeding my restless heart with a strong dose of wanderlust. My next trip can’t come soon enough!
Theres just something about the line work, the intricate details, the shapes and colors, every use of the element of design that keeps me motivated. It’s fascinating to think about the history behind these buildings and designs that they work so hard to uphold. Theres something magical about it. I’m glad I’ve gotten to experience it.
