Welcome to the University of Sunderland

Hey guysss, long time no see!

As you may or may not already know, I am in my first year at Sunderland uni studying Fashion Journalism. I moved last Saturday and i'm having an amazing time so far, although I am already sick of eating pasta.

I haven't started lectures and workshops for the course properly yet but guess what our first task was?? The class got to go to Fenwick department store in Newcastle, where we partook in interviewing Steven Dante, the womenswear floor manager. He was lovely and very informative!

After the interview, our task was to shop!! We had to scour the store for an item we thought would feature in a magazine 'loves' section, and write a 50-80 word piece on said item.

I chose this beautiful Vilagallo shirt; and here's what I wrote:

"Sugar-coat your wardrobe with this seasons must-have. This retro style Vilagallo shirt boasts a unique print of Alice in Wonderland style tea parties and pin-up girls galore. Its sorbet shades ensure those summer days can be carried through to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe, enabling you to make a statement wherever you go. Buy it now for £99 at Fenwick department store."

There we have it, our first little journalistic task; a shopping trip and interview (definitely not complaining)

PS. I love my course already, Monday's and Friday's off!!
