KARL VON BUSSE: Work Experience

This week I had work experience at Karl Von Busse Institute of Design. It was a 4 day experience and we learnt the basics of Graphic, Interior and Fashion design.

In Graphic Design we had to make a representation of any object by only using paper, glue, tape and scissors. I chose to make a shoe I wanted to buy for ages but I had changed the colours.

My inspiration was: YRU Qozmo Sky White Platforms

My prototype that I made:

In Interior Design, we had to partner up and be each others client and interior designer. We had to draw a floor plan suited to our clients needs and made a mood board. Here's the one I made.

In Fashion Design, we learned to make a pattern with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and put it on apparel.

Lately I've been thinking about my future and what I want to do and where I want to go. Obviously as you all know, I really love fashion. I've decided that I definitely want to do something with fashion. Either a fashion blogger, fashion designer or fashion stylist.

Recently this year I have developed a large interest in Japanese fashion. I have taken up learning Japanese because I am very eager to study fashion there and live there.

It all started, when I was introduced to Shoichi Aoki, a Japanese street photographer in Photography class at school. He created FRUiTS Magazine, which was filled of photographs of Japanese youth fashion. I loved it so much because it was colourful, crazy and   funky! I tried finding recent photographs through Tumblr and then decided to actually buy the magazines! I went to Kinokuniya and bought my first ever FRUiTS magazine. It was a bit expensive. It costed $14.50 and in Japan it retailed for 555 yen which was around $6. 

I loved the magazine so much. I saw Harajuku fashion as my fashion inspirations. But here in Sydney, I thought it would be difficult to buy clothing items, Harajuku style and also it is difficult to wear "out there" clothing cause here in Sydney, I hate the style because it's so plain and boring and everyone is wearing the same thing. So I decided I needed to go to Harajuku in Japan because I love it so much and I feel like it's the only place where you can learn to feel comfortable in clothing.

I have been obsessing over the Harajuku fashion and Japan and I just had a crazy thought and typed in "Japanese fashion schools" and the first thing that came up was Bunka Fashion College. I went into their site and I LOVED it. I wanted to go their right away!!!! But I didn't know any Japanese so straight away I went and got some Japanese tuition. I have a Japanese language blog to keep track of my progress. If you're curious here's the link. www.meilunsjapaneseblog.blogspot.com

But there is one thing that's holding me back and the one thing I don't have. Well two things I don't have. I don't have supportive parents of this dream and because of that I don't have any tuition fees for it, so I don't know what to do. Basically I have to find a way of paying it for myself. However, my mum keeps urging me to do a Media/Communications degree here in Sydney, but I'm not really into that. I really want to spend my whole life doing fashion! I talked to this girl who goes to Bunka and is a international student and she went to Bunka after graduating uni which means she is around 24. Truthfully, I can't wait to get out of Sydney. I find it very boring and I really want to go to a place where its fresh and I don't know anyone. I find that really exciting. The whole idea of Japan is really exciting for me and I really can't wait to go.

SO, here are my plans that I have thought about.

PLAN 1 (The most ideal plan)

2016 (18 years old)
- Graduate high school with a good atar
- Travel to Japan for a holiday
2017-2018 (19-20 years old)
- Work to earn money for school tuition
- Keep learning Japanese
- Travel to Japan a few times
2019 (21 years old)
- Go to Bunka Institute of Language to take a full-time Japanese course
- Take the N2 JPLT test.
2020-2023 (22-25 years old)

PLAN 2 (If the first one doesn't go to plan.)

2016 (18 years old)
- Graduate high school with a good atar
- Travel to Japan for a holiday
2017-2020 (19-22 years old)
- Media/Communications course
- Keep learning Japanese
- Have a part time job to earn school fees
- Travel to Japan a few times
2021 (23 years old)
- Go to Bunka Institute of Language to take a full-time Japanese course
- Take the N2 JPLT test.
2022-2025 (24-27 years old)

Now looking at it, PLAN 2 doesn't seem so bad anymore. I can fulfil my mum's demands, can have also start saving up for Japan and have a degree in Media/Communications. But no matter what, I am going to Japan and Bunka Fashion College and I am determined!!!!
