Oh My Love Student Bloggers: Uni Outfit

Lace Top & Mom Jeans- Carboot
Snake print Kimono- c/o Oh My Love
Shoes- Office
Rucksack- Urban Outfitters



I kind of mentioned in a previous blog post that I had a student blogger feature coming up with Oh My Love and today is the first out of three posts! Oh My Love kindly asked to collaborate with me knowing that I am a uni student and asked me to pick 3 items that I would then style around my uni lifestyle. I've been receiving several emails and questions on the run up to the start of term so thought it was perfect timing to try and hopefully answer a few questions I'm asked regularly about uni and my course.

To start with, let's talk about this beautiful little kimono. The coloured snakeskin print is an absolute dreammm! I actually think snakeskin is pretty hard to clash with other prints (like I normally do) so I toned it down for once with mom jeans and my trusty, comfy platform loafers. Despite all the walking and train journeys I have to make to get to uni, these shoes never hurt my feet which is why I shall never get rid of them <3. The kimono isn't actually available on the site any more :( but there are lots of other gorgeous ones here.

For those of you who don't know, I am going into my third year of Fashion Media and Promotion at Northbrook College which is a little college in Worthing, affiliated by Brighton University. The course is really broad and covers areas such as photography, styling, marketing, journalism, environment, film, digital media, editorial design and fashion forecasting. You don't learn of all the above in one year but you do cover the majority of it in your first year. I would definitely recommend a fashion media and promotion course if you are interested in studying the non-design side of fashion because it teaches you lots of different areas meaning you have several pathways you can go down when you finish the degree. 

I also get asked quite often how I got onto the course and what sort of stuff I had in my portfolio. I was at college for three years due to being unsure of what I wanted to do but during that time I studied English Lit & Lang, Photography, Media, Textiles, Psychology , Critical Thinking and Philosophy. Obviously some were more relevant than others haha. In my portfolio for my uni interview I put in adverts and magazine front covers I had created in Media, some fashion photography and styling, a few pages from my textiles sketchbook and an essay I wrote for Photography to show them my writing skills. For this type of course, it's good to show a wide range of skills in your portfolio rather than just one subject to show what you are capable of. 

Hope this post was helpful to any one contemplating taking a Fashion degree, if your not then I'm sorry- this probably completely bored you haha!

  5. It seems to be such an interesting subject you are studying! Here in estonia we have rather boring subjects and only possibility to learn something even close to what you are doing is to go to the art college - however people really don't appreciate an education like that and would prefer something "academic" .. uh desicions! I'm glad you've found your way :)
