Good Evening Ladies and Gentleman,
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. As I am typing this post I am still in shock that I was able to meet Kirstie Clements (former editor of Vogue, Australia Magazine). My fiancee and I attended the book signing event at Westfield, Southland. There was seats but it was only seated for VIP guests. We were both lucky because we were chosen to fill up two front row seats in the VIP area. I was squealing inside me like a little girl.
Back to the book signing, Kirstie spoke briefly about her career at Vogue starting out as receptionist and working her way up as an Editor. She was at the book signing to promote her latest book called “IMPRESSIVE- How To Have A Stylish Career”. Her latest book with the help of industry insiders is to assist people that want to have a dream job in fashion, how to ask for a pay rise and how do you be noticed and get ahead. One of the advices she made in her speech is if we wanted to get into the fashion industry. She would not hire employees that would say that their passion is fashion and love clothes (She does not want self proclaimed fashionistas and people that enjoy shopping). She would prefer an employee that loves art, music, books, media, literature and photographer.
After her speech it was time for the book signing. I was really shy but she made me feel comfortable as she asked if I was in fashion. I told her I was not in fashion and that I am in the corporate world but have my own fashion blog. I mentioned to her that I have all her books so she was happy to hear that and I said that its wonderful that she has written this book to assist people that wish to be in fashion as its a great insight for people that have not been in fashion before. She was lovely to speak to and even said that she really wanted to assist people who wish to have a dream job in fashion and glad that she could assist people who needed tips and advice.
Note to myself: I will definitely be getting rid of the silk white blouse as you can see the peek a boob (that means that the shirt is too small for me). So lesson for me and anyone else, if the shirt is too small and has a peek a boob do not buy it. Such an embarrassment! Should have not worn this white silk blouse but did not know it had the peek a boob :(.
As we were VIP guests we received goodie bags containing San Churro chocolate, Nail Polish and Lip gloss from Mecca Maxima, Sparkling Water
If you wish to read her other books they are titled “Tongue In Chic (Book 1)” and “Vogue Factor (Book 2)”.
