Top Five Fashion Flight Tips

If you’re beating the winter blues by jetting off to warmer climes or simply planning a weekend away in a foreign city, make sure you’re dressed for the occasion with these top five fashion travel tips.

  1. Buy a passport wallet. There’s no point making an effort with your outfit only to dig out a dog-eared, creased passport as soon as you get to customs. A passport wallet will give you an air of the well-travelled while a bright design will make your passport easier to find when rooting around in your bag in the queue. There are some great leather designs around to protect your passport, some of which also feature extra sleeves for your cards and travel documents.
  2. Don’t forget your umbrella! Most of Northern Europe is likely to be at risk of rain (or snow!) in January and February and even southern climes can experience changeable conditions. Fortunately, an umbrella can be an asset to your ensemble – try a strong, wooden-handled, walking-length umbrella with polka dots or lace for a timelessly sophisticated look.
  3. Take the right bag. There’s nothing more embarrassing than the inevitable argument with the check-in crew as you try to squeeze your enormous holdall (“It will fit, honest!”) into the measuring bins in the departure lounge. Most retailers provide measurements for their products and some ranges feature bags specially tailored to the standard dimensions for carry-on luggage.
  4. Use hotel shampoo. Not only will it save you precious luggage space, cheap shampoo can actually be good for your hair. Hotel shampoos often contain foaming agents which can dry out oily winter hair, leaving your locks with more body and shine.
  5. Go for flats. Unless you’re very accustomed to big heels, teetering round an airport on the first day of your holiday is more likely to bring you blisters than beauty. Flat or low-heeled ankle and calf-high boots are perfect for navigating Heathrow’s Terminal 5 and are versatile both for UK winter weather and a bit of early spring sun abroad.

Fashion School Tips

The idea of fashion school might seem like a catwalk, but in reality a degree in fashion is extremely demanding, rigorous and competitive. By following these five fashion school tips for success, you will be well on your way to a degree and a fashion career!

Tip 1: Pursuing Your Passion
If you are interested in pursuing a fashion design degree, it’s important to evaluate whether this is the right field for you. Do you see a fashion design and think about how to make it better? Can you not stop yourself from going through every magazine and critiquing the looks? Are you constantly altering you and your friends’ clothes? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, then fashion design school is probably for you!

Tip 2: Choosing the Right School
Now that you know fashion is your passion, the next step is choosing a fashion school that meets your needs. You need a school that has state-of-the-art equipment, that hires fashion professionals to teach its courses, plus one that is extremely connected to the current fashion industry. Are you looking for a school that is located in a metropolis? Or are you looking to take fashion classes online? This criteria will help you narrow in on the fashion school that is perfect for you!

Tip 3: Study, Study, Study
Now that you are in a fashion school that meets all of your prerequisites, you need to do well! This means picking the correct fashion courses to fulfill your degree and focus. Read each course syllabus thoroughly and create your calendar according to when assignments are due. Take notes during class and go over them before you attend class again. Give yourself plenty of time to complete your design projects – more than a week. Do not skip parts of your projects: draw a rough draft, select colors, make patterns, etc. Mastering correct study habits and your creative process early on will help you in your fashion future.

Tip 4: Make Connections
You go to classes, are doing extremely well and have most of the basics down. Now you need to take a look around you. What other students are doing well? Which instructors really stick out in your mind? You should volunteer to collaborate with them; offer to do extra projects with them and meet with your instructors if at all possible. The best way to make it in the fashion world is to pave the path with people that know and like you!

Tip 5: Put Yourself Out There
Now you know how to ace all your classes, create the fashion designs you love and you know your peers and professors. It’s time to take the plunge and put yourself out there: get a fashion internship! Your fashion school has connections and resources that you can only utilize as a student – take advantage! If you keep putting it off until after you graduate, you are missing the opportunities currently available to you.
