It’s been about a week now since my return from Italy and I am finally getting back into my routine. The first few days were definitely tough but it was all worth it, after all I was in Italy no complaints there.
I am so lucky to have gone on such a wonderful trip that both taught me about the fashion industry - which I strive to work in one day - and gave me a great international experience in one of the most beautiful places I have ever travelled to.
Reflecting back on my trip, I miss the long days our class had exploring the different steps in the value chain for the fashion industry, it really excited my passions. Although some days weren’t as fun as others, I am still appreciative because I learned how much it takes to be involved in one of the world’s biggest industries. There are way more steps in the value chain for creating a brand than I previously imagined.
In the near future I hope to learn more about the fashion industry value chain in our hometown of Los Angeles. I also hope to be able to learn about the industry in New York City as I am currently applying for fashion internships there for the summer.
I am so thankful for everyone who made this trip possible! I cannot wait to visit Italy again very soon!
