Last Saturday January 31st, I held my first ever Personal Styling Workshop at the Craft MNL headquarters. I didn’t sleep much the night before in anxious anticipation coupled with excitement. They say when you’re nervous it means you care about the results, want to do well and excel. Exactly how I felt. My goal was for the module to be super helpful, relevant, easy to understand and follow and most importantly, engaging enough to make it fun! To say the least, it was a success–gauging from their curiosity and enthusiasm during the activities. Some even asked for a repeat session for friends who couldn’t make it! Needless to say I was extremely elated and grateful for the experience. Looks like a start of something great. Stay tuned for the next workshop scheduled for summer. In the meantime, read on to see what went down.
