In other news, I got the opportunity to visit River Island head offices with my university class on Friday. We got shown round by the assistant buyer for menswear accessories and a designer for menswear. It was the most amazing experience, to see what they do on a day to day basis and how much work goes into one season of collections. There were rails of clothes that filled up every inch of wall and mood boards scattered everywhere. We also got to see where they hold important range meetings and the mock shop where they set up collections to see how it would look when it's actually in store. It was such an inspirational trip and has motivated me so much to get through these 4 years at university!
