why hello there

it’s been a really long time since i’ve posted anything substantial. for the last 5 months or so, if i’ve posted, it’s been about sample sales or what not.

i had been meaning to at the very least write a post after each semester and the summer but clearly i haven’t.

to be honest, i have very little desire to write anything but i guess i should for consistency. it’s going to be super short.

spring semester:

  • consulted for the council of fashion designers of america
  • interned at mandarin oriental hotel group
  • took some elective classes, like luxury marketing and luxury branding
  • survived aswath damodaran’s “corporate finance” course, thanks to my awesome study group
  • went to south africa

summer:

  • spent in seattle
  • interned at nordstrom hq doing product management for e-commerce
  • apparently able to find more of my kinda music in seattle
  • went to portland and vancouver for the first time
  • weddings and bachelorette parties

this fall semester:

  • not doing the cfda
  • interning at chanel
  • planning a trek to san francisco for our luxury & retail club

i am recruiting again for a full-time job after i graduate but the industry usually does as-needed, just-in-time hiring so totally expecting not to have an offer until way later. which is making it hard for me to decide whether i should actually study abroad next semester.

i really would like to go but the job situation and fomo are making it difficult.

and speaking of sample sales, there are a bunch coming up that i want to go to. and i’m too lazy to post about them, so find out on your own.

chanel + colette

two legendary fashion addresses–chanel 31 rue cambon and colette 213 rue saint-honore–are collaborating for a boutique located at 336-34 rure saint-honore.

the boutique is a former garage and the installation will combine fashion, visual arts, and musical performances.  the chanel spring/summer 2011 collection is being juxtaposed with selections by young designers chosen by colette.  a mademoiselle bag in the famous colette color will be originally customized by various artists, such as kevin lyons, soledad, andre, fafi, and so-me.

below are some images by karl hab for hypebeast from the opening:
