Describe your personal style? Most of the time its very minimalistic, but once in a while I like to change it up and wear something out of my comfort zone.
Where do you go on your breaks from class? I try to visit different places everyday but Café Bene has to be my favorite.
What is your favorite thing about FIT? Knowing that im learning about the industry in the mecca of fashion itself from professors with extensive experiences in the industry.
Who or what inspires you? A magical place called the internet. Web platforms such as lookbook.com , youtube.com, and tumblr.com. these are amazing sources of inspiration.
What do you want to do after you graduate from college? Right now, im sold on entering the retailing industry. Becoming a buyer for Saks or Macy’s and essentially working my way up the corporate ladder is a dream!
