We all have a dream, right? Since before I can remember I've had an affinity for style- stolen somewhat from the leading women in my life. When I left high school I dreamt of studying 'fashion journalism.' I settled for journalism as the closest course was a 24-hour plane ride away. I had to pursue the 'fashion' side on my own and so I began scratching away at my dream. Endless hours interning, volunteering and immersing myself in every opportunity. I remember reading an article on IFB that said "do something every day, no matter how small, that contributes to your dream." For me, following this mantra worked. I've had some incredible experiences from being the Resident Blogger at MSFW to attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Right now it's an interesting time to be entering the fashion industry. Traditional mastheads are dissolving and disappearing altogether (RIP GRAZIA & Madison) and the online arena has become an uncharted territory. Just as Leandra says "Gen-Y have been dubbed the entrepreneurial generation. Most of us couldn't land the jobs we wanted, so we just made our own."
This brings me to my latest venture and the request for your help… I am a finalist in a competition run by Australian Super dedicated to Kick Starting our careers.
The prize? A trip to London Fashion Week 2013.
With your vote I could be on my way… and for you? The chance to score yourself tickets to The Voice Australia finale in Sydney.
Let's kick this dream out of the park!
