So I just realized that this is the first time I’ve posted about New York
City! I got back April 14th from the best trip of my life! I couldn’t have
asked for a better vacation! I could call this trip technically a “field
trip” since I went with my Fashion & Design class from school. The
best thing, though, was that some of my very best friends are in the class with
me, so it really made for some special, once-in-a-lifetime memories!
I am at a crossroads in my life, of deciding what the Lord has in store for
my life. Currently, I am definitely going to pursue my dream for social work,
in hopes of one day working for an adoption agency (even ideally as the
Director, so I can travel the world with adoptive families to bring their
precious children home). But, also, there has always been a very special
passion in my life for fashion. This trip really brought out that passion once
again, which leaves me with some decisions to make about my future career,
Most of the trip was centered around touring New York’s Garment district,
which is absolutely incredible to see, especially from behind-the-scenes, which
I was able to experience. While in New York , I did the typical “tourist”
attractions. I saw the Statue of Liberty, went to the top of the Empire State
building, saw a musical on Broadway (Mamma Mia!), and shopped in SoHo and 5th
Avenue. But, most people aren’t able to say that they shopped sample sales,
toured pattern making & grading shops, watched jewelry being made for
celebrities or toured Parsons School for Design.
I had such an incredible experience, and I would go back in a heartbeat if I
could. Here is the best memories I have of the week in snapshots! Enjoy, loves!
