I thought I would update on my life lately as I have been a bit absent on the blog (for no reason really) and I thought I would also update on the fact that I have a new career which I am loving.
My friends and people that know me probably are wondering why I left my last job as it seemed like I loved it. I was always travelling to London which I loved, I had client parties and bbq's and it was really sociable and fun. Deep down though something didn't quite fulfil me, but every job you take is a stepping stone. There was a lack of creativity within the job and I couldn't see myself doing it forever. I thought I would keep going as I don't quit easily and I hadn't been there for too long. Working in fashion & retail recruitment my job would involve approaching and interviewing the right people with the skills and talent that matched up to what my client was looking for. So it was real odd when the CEO of a company approached me and invited me for an interview for the role of a personal menswear stylist.
I was ecstatic really because this was pretty much was my ideal job. I have an appreciation for menswear and I get to be creative everyday. It is definitely a stepping stone towards a great direction. I liaise with my clients and get to know them well, I have style consultations with them whether that's over coffee if they are local enough or over my mobile if not. Then I basically get them looking fabulous whether that's by styling them in a Calvin Klein shirt or a Scotch & Soda knit or a Lubiam blazer.
To conclude, I feel that I am on the right path to where I want to be. I believe everything happens for a reason and you have to grab any opportunity that is given to you. I have a History degree but I wanted to pursue fashion. I got told that I couldn't do it and that made me determined to do it.
