The intern

So lats week I scored a internship at Forward PR here in London, it feels amazing and I’m so exciting about working there. I’m gonna spend two days a week at their office near by Piccadilly circus. I had my first day yesterday and everyone was so sweet and nice so it feels really, really good.

This week school started again, also very exciting! This semester I’m taking creative directions for fashion media, styling, marketing, journalism, PR and social media & online communication. So far I’ve had my first classes in everything except journalism and social media and I must say I’m very happy with the introduction, they all feel very inspiring and interesting (ask me again in March when I’m in the middle of deadlines and final presentations.. JK)

Now I’m going to unpack the rest of my stuff, we moved in to our flat last Monday but since they days has been pretty hectic I still have some things left in my suitcase. We left Chelsea for our new neighborhood Marleybone, very central, very posh. I feel a little misplaced but I can’t complain though, it’s lovely to just have a 15 minute walk to school!

London College of Fashion – day 2

So second day of school is done. I can’t explain how much I love it here so I’m nog gonna try to either but oh my I’m so happy here.


Today we met some of our teachers – Fifi who will teach us in fashion history and artifact and Michael who’s the teacher of British cultural studies. They both seems amazing and I got so inspired by the both of them. I just want the classes to start NOW.  We also met a woman who work for WGSN who thought us how to use their services which was fun cause when I studied at SoFI in Norway my trend forecasting teacher taught us so much about the things she talked about so I felt right at home at once haha. Now I’m reeeeeally tired after all the info and impressions of these last two days.

Tomorrow we will be walking around London and hopefully I have the opportunity to take som pictures for the blog. Now I’m off to meet up with two american girls from school for some coffee.
