LCS; day 1

My first day of LCS finally began, and what a wonderful day!  Celebrity stylist and founder, Wendy Elsmore, started the day with introductions and then went through our summer assignments.  Our first guest lecturer, Grace Bank, editor ay V Style, stopped in and gave us a run through of the online magazine.

After lunch our customization lecturer arrived and we were each given an every-day, slightly frump garment.  Selena Francis-Bryden who has customized for Dolce& Gabbana, Sex& the City and many others introduced us to a "waste not, want not" kind of DIY afternoon.  I was given a very maternity-esque purple top and I quickly snipped the sleeves, redid the hem by 4inches to make it a crop and added some trim flair and vintage flat beads.  We were assessed and then given copies of Selena's book.  Tomorrow starts at the V&A with the Yohji Yamamoto exhibition.  xx
