Bonjour mes amis,
For those of you who do not know, or just stumbled upon my cleverly named blog (not to toot my own horn or anything), my name is Veronica and I am excited to share my new life with all of you.
From when I was little all I can remember is loving fashion. I would go to my grandmother’s house and in my little High School Musical notebook I would copy sketching the outfits that the models on the tv were wearing. But of course like any strict parents would do, fashion wasn’t a sure thing for my future, so I instead dedicated my academic life to business. After finishing my first year at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada I realized I needed more and I hated feeling like I wasn’t living out to my full expectation. So my wonderful mother and I started looking at schools in Europe, seeing as it would be quite simple for me to get a European Passport and I found the International Fashion Academy (IFA) in Paris, France.
I never in a million years thought I would get into the Fashion Marketing program seeing as only 25 students got in a year, but I decided to put my all into my portfolio, apply, and well here I am today!
The move to Paris was not easy. I left behind my family and friends and packed up my whole life (BTW: 4 suitcases full of air tight ziplock bags is not fun to pack). I was a little nervous, especially because of the language barrier seeing as I speak next to no French, but I was excited to get my own apartment and meet new people! Now after being here for 2 weeks and well into my first week of school, I am thrilled to say that I know I made the right choice and I really do love what I do.
So what will this blog be about? Well I have a love for fashion (duh!) as well as beauty, food, music, etc. and a lot of my friends have encouraged me to write about my experience seeing as I am so fortunate. Through IFA I will also get to experience amazing opportunities like Paris Fashion Week, and just living in the most “beautiful city” with all the amazing architecture and street style I am sure will inspire me and hopefully you!
So that’s how I got here in a quick nutshell and I am beyond excited to share this experience with all of you! Keep posted for my next Apartment Tour blog, aswell as some of my favourite looks from fashion week! Until than…
Au revoir mon amour!
