Fashion Institute of the Philippines Experience
hello there again my lovely readers! I just posted a new giveaway! Have you joined already? :)
Anyhow, I want to share to all of you about my experience on studying at FIP :)
So, way back 2009, before I studied architecture, I studied at Fashion Institute of the Philippines. Why? off course because I wanna be a fashion designer slash architect slash interior designer some day.
Since I am 6 months waiting for the 1st term of Mapua (After I studied 1 term on UST), and I dont wanna waste my time, I enrolled at Club Gymnastica Manila, Halili Cruz school of ballet and at Fashion Institute of the Philippines.
Too many schools right? yay! haha. Because Im the kind of person who always love doing something.
Back to the topic- Why FIP?
First of all, Its the first school I knew since I modeled clothes on a fashion show event by FIP.
Second, There are a lot of successful designers that I know personally who is a graduate of FIP. One of them is Architect/Fashion Designer Zxander Tan. Check out my blog post about him HERE
And lastly, based on my research, FIP is the least expensive yet worth-it fashion design school here in our country. But guess what? It costs 11,000 per subject not including the instruments that is needed. You think fashion designing is just easy as that? No! Math? Formulas? Its present! We call ourselves “Fashion Engineers”
But I didn’t regret. Their right, Its all worth it!
We are like just one family in there. My classmates are of different ages. Teen, Young adult, and even house wives and husbands. 10% are guys, 40% are gays, and 50% are girls. haha!
The professors(Most probably gays) are so friendly! You better get ready your tummy coz you will surely laugh and laugh and laugh! :> One of my favorite professor is Oz Go. (PFW Designer) and guess what? The famous Paul and John Herrera even shared with me their love and s*x life. yay! haha. Yah, they are just so friendly :> And I am so honored to meet and talk to them :)
Anyway, We eat at the same time together with the staffs and professor during break time. And just like a normal school, we teach each other when there are hard patterns.
We even do have homeworks! :( And Exams as well. But the good thing about that is that all the classes are hands on activity thus you will really be able to learn.
So, here are some pictures that I took during those days. Too bad its only few :( But I admit, Its full of lectures on the board coz of getting tardy on taking down notes :| yah you know when you are excited on doing hands on right away right? So pls forgive me :D
One of our class rooms. Hey there teacher Oz! :) She/he is a brother/sister of Rachel Ann Go :)
See that mane-quine? Its adjustable! You can change its bust, shoulder, waist size and so on. So you can shape it just like your body :)
Here’s one of our lecture. But I wont post too much.
Here’s another one. See those numbers? yikes!
The sewing room. Please excuse the fan. The whole FIP is centralized air conditioned :)
bluuuuured :| Anw, my class schedule is from Monday to Friday. 9am to 6pm
Teacher Oz Go on the making :)
This shitzu is just so lovely! That’s the great thing about FIP. You can bring pets! hihi.
So that’s it! Too bad I didn’t had a chance to have a group picture with my friends/classmates.
Well anyway, I’ll probably get back there!
