Hello Tokyo: A Fashion Designer's Dream

Konichiwa! My name is Jasmine Mitchell and I'm a 23 year old aspiring fashion designer trying to pave my way in the fashion industry. My passion for designing clothes lead me to Chicago where I attended and graduated college majoring in Fashion design. For me fashion is an outlet, in which I use my both my creativity and my environment to inspire my designs. I am working in my field in Chicago with the hopes of one day starting my own clothing line. I have gained a lot of experience in Chicago but there is so much I want to learn elsewhere. Why not learn in one of the world's fashion captials,Tokyo, Japan. I have always drawn inspiration from Japan and I aspired to work in their fashion industry some day. From their street fashion, food, and anime I love everything about the Japanese culture. It has been a dream of mine to study fashion first hand in Tokyo and I now have an opportunity to do so. I have signed up with a program to intern with a clothing line in Tokyo in April of 2015 for 3 months. This is a once in a life time opportunity for me and I'm going to work hard to achieve my dreams. Going to Tokyo will help me better understand Japanese traditions and culture so that I can use my experiences there as inspiration when designing clothes. I will also be able to improve upon my Japanese language skills and work towards being fluent. As a designer this opportunity can help me improve my designing skills and learn more complex fashion techniques used in Japan. With your help I hope to raise enough money to get me to Tokyo and to live out my dream. Any donation will truly be a blessing and appreciated. Thank you so much for taking time to view my page and I will keep everyone up to date on my progress. With much thanks, Jasmine Mitchell
