Some astronomy for you

Since I was little I have always been fascinated with the planets, stars and space in general.  Last year during my senior year of high school I had the opportunity to take an astronomy elective and that passion that I had when I was little rekindled itself. Since then I have been interesting in all things astronomy, paying attention to cosmic events, updates in the field, and star and constellations in general.

So I just wanted to tell everyone out there that this Monday night not only will there be a full moon, but it will be a supermoon (when the moon is extra close to Earth) that is the brightest we have seen in half a century! It’s sure to be a cool sight so make sure to check it out!

Also if you like astronomy as much as I do, here a link to the astronomy picture of the day from NASA, a picture of the Great Rift near the center of the Milky Way.



Fashion major perks

One of the perks of being a fashion design major is the field trips.

Yesterday I got a chance to visit New York City with the students of the fashion design program at Syracuse University. We got to visit two exhibits, one at the FIT and one uptown at 105th and Madison. Despite the fact that I had to wake up at the ungodly hour of 5am to walk to the bus across campus, I had so much fun getting to explore the city with my friends and have a change of scenery.

Since I live in central New Jersey, I have been to New York many many times before. Getting to go yesterday felt like a little taste of home and a nice break from the busy college life. Only 12 more days until thanksgiving!:)

The Penthouse

Although the buses to and from it can be a pain in the butt to catch, the warehouse really is an amazing place. It’s nice that all of us design kids have a separate place that we can call home to our workspaces and studios, but one floor definitely shines a little brighter to me: the seventh floor.

Maybe I’m biased (I probably am) but the penthouse floor, home to fashion design, has quickly become one of my favorite places to work. With it’s spacious layout it’s easy to see the whole floor covered with sewing machines, sergers, and dress forms. However, the best part is probably the view.

It’s no New York City but I have to say, it’s pretty close. Here’s to spending my next four years on floor seven.
