Describe your personal style? I’m a very creative person, so most of the time I cant help but show it in the way I dress. I love the whole African mixed with natural look, so you’ll see me with turbans on my head, big hand made or African-looking jewelry, sandals and high wedged shoes.
Where do you go on your breaks from class? I normally just stay in class and finish working. Its not every day I get to be in FIT’s fashion classroom! So I figure I might as well take advantage of it.
What is your favorite thing about FIT? The people I’m surrounded by and the cool teachers who’ve worked for designers and magazines. It makes me feel like I know celebrities! J One day that will be me.Who or what inspires you? What inspires me the most are couture designs and art galleries. I love to see how unique and creative a person can be. It’s like getting into their minds emotionally.
What do you want to do after you graduate from college? I hope to aspire my own fashion company one day or be a huge fashion designer that will be remembered throughout fashion history. I see myself walking behind my fashion collection, waving, after a runway fashion show.
