In many ways our trip to New York City was more than a dream come true. We had a private tour of CNN, I sat on the steps of the Met and toured the Associated Press headquarters. I also learned a lot about writing and journalism practices during the many hours we spent in workshops.
It just so happens that this conference was perfectly timed with an assignment for my journalism practicum class, in which I created and write a fashion blog. For my assignment I have to create a 3-5 minute video regarding fashion. What better place to capture the world of fashion than the fashion capital of America! After my tour of the Associated Press, I ran off to find Mood Fabrics–the fabric store featured on Project Runway.
I interviewed an employee about men’s fashion and a sculptor who finds her inspiration from fashion. Earlier in the trip I interviewed an NYU student who used to blog for Teen Vogue.
You can find the edited video of the interviews on my blog by March 27.
