Yesterday was a very hectic day. It was the day that I officially started my PhD, and it was the day of Solent University’s fashion show in London. I started the day by popping into Solent (my old uni) to get my MPhil thesis bound for my viva, and then went up to the University of Southampton (my new uni) to have my PhD induction. I got shown my desk, introduced to people, had a tour of the campus and was told the all important regular Friday plans of cake and pub. I’m really looking forward to being surrounded by other research students and chatting ideas over.
From here I went up to London, and after picking up my sister’s birthday present, arrived at Solent’s fashion show which was held at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. It is the first time that they have held a show in London (they are doing a Southampton show as well) and it was very cool! As guests arrived they were greeted by the sight of a live fashion shoot, with photography, styling and make up students all working together. Student portfolios were on display showing a selection of work from all of the fashion degree pathways. The fashion show made me proud to be a Solent graduate! Here are some of the pictures.
