A case of you//James Blake
I’d thought I make a set for the dream job contest because it is relevant to what I’m doing for the New Year. So here goes:
I initially wanted to be a fashion designer. It’s been a ‘dream’ since I was very young because I loved textiles design. But since studying my BA in fashion design for the past year, I’ve had a change of heart.
I don’t have a ‘dream’ job, but I’d like to work in the fashion industry.
I see myself going into the different creative areas of the industry, such as maybe editorial design. I like creating layouts and I’ve love typography since doing my Art A Level. One of my projects was dedicated to typography in which I made these scarves with a typography inspired print. I have recently started to use Adobe InDesign, which is a great software and helps to create layouts for magazines pages or posters etc.
Another ideal job would be in fashion journalism, which my friend suggested. I enjoy writing a lot. Some people discover their love of writing when they’re young and some discover it much later. I discovered I enjoyed it only just a little over a year ago. A good friend encouraged me to write and now I just love it :) I read a lot as well and it helps when writing.
At the moment, I will be interning at Eudon Choi for 3 months, which will help me gain an insight of what it’s like working with a fashion designer and understanding the design process before the final collection for fashion week.
For the summer I am hoping to apply for magazines such as Dazed & Confused and i-D magazine once I have build up my editorial design portfolio. This is just to see if I see myself working in editorial. So for the time being, I am trying new things out, but I’m still trying to find myself in which career path would suit me. Hopefully interning at various fashion companies and magazines will be the right way forward and build connections :)
Question of the day:
What is everyone’s dream job? I’d love to hear about it :). It doesn’t have to be in fashion btw.
EDIT: Top Sets for 28th December. Thanks Polyvore! What a lovely surprise :')
