I am scared. Despite the brave face I’ve put on, I don’t think I’ve ever been more nervous in my life. Change is good and well needed, but keeping up with all the endings and new beginnings going on at the moment is crazy.
Hello everyone, my name is Chloe Tso, and I am a 17 years old girl from Long Island, NY. I’m sorry the intro is very serious, but you should know a lot is in store for me within the next few months. High school has just ended, all my friends are going off on their own paths, and I am going to be a freshman at Binghamton University this September. As you can imagine, a range of emotions and thoughts are racing through my mind. The scheduled life I’ve followed for five years is no more, and the typical “see you next year” doesn’t work anymore. This transitional period of my life is daunting, yet exciting for me.
While I am excited to start the summer program at FIT, to add on to new beginnings, these are the first art classes I’ll be taking since 7th grade. Shocking, I know! For anyone taking the Cityscape and Beginner Photography class, I’m excited to meet you. When I entered high school, I made the difficult decision to put art behind music. Now that I’ve become a decent cello player, I thought it was time to explore my art skills and improve them. I hope to transform the doodles in my notebook and the photos from my Instagram into something more.
The pressures from the start of college will plague my mind, but I’ve decided to enter this program as I will enter college: with an open mind. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know what I want to major in, but I’ve learned to accept and embrace it. The purpose of classes is to experience them firsthand and expose myself to the various fields. I could go off to become a famous photographer, or maybe I’ll decide to go into engineering, but every experience contributes to my future and knowledge. While there is much uncertainty surrounding my future, I know one thing for sure: I am excited for the summer and the FIT program!

I’m Sabrina Giacomaggio, I’m 17 years young but growing up in New York has made me wise. I currently live on Long Island, a completely different world than Manhattan. Every opportunity I get I find myself escaping to the big city to find the hidden treasures this place has to offer. With a cup of coffee in my hand, and my headphones on my head, I begin my summer days on the LIRR to the most inspirational place I’ve seen yet, FIT.
FIT has been a motivation, inspiration and a thought of all things hope since as long as I would remember. At a young age I found myself gallivanting about fashion and the big school on 7th ave. With doubt of the practicality of the fashion and art world from many straight edged teachers and adults, I find myself with every opportunity moving in the right direction toward my dreams. As fall approaches, senior year comes closer and closer with the thoughts of applications and portfolios bashing into one and other through my head, causing a constant reminder of what’s next. My Precollege Classes this semester will be helping me, and inspiring me as I work on my final portfolio for the fall. With every bit of spare time, a lot caffeine, I’ll type my life away serving, all you readers.
FIT Precollege Programs are one of the most influential and life stirring decisions I’ve decided to partake in yet, as my last summer here, I plan to make it my best. I hope you all find the reins on your life and let this amazing place stir you in the right direction. Every opportunity is what you make it.
Until next time,
HFM 060 Fashion Forecasting: Seeing into the Future
As summer rolls around and the sun beats its glorious rays down on you, imagine one thing you’d love to have. Yes, you’re thinking it and I’m thinking it…. ICE CREAM! Think of me as your ‘ice cream’ now for all your fashion troubles and sad times when you’re in need of some amazing style. But trust me, I’m not your average vanilla soft-serve with tacky rainbow sprinkles. I’m a magical mix of all your favorite ice cream flavors put into one.
But obviously, we’re not here for ice cream. So say hello to the blogger who will take you through the sweet world of the FIT Precollege. My name is Lea (not like Princess Leia but more like Lea Michele) but I’d like to be known as the “style saviour.” Fashion saved me from a very dark, depressing, insecure life as a young girl. Literally, my life was ill-fitting head to toe matching jumpsuits. And so I’ve made it my goal to save other’s lives through fashion just as it saved mine by revolutionizing the fashion world and getting people hooked onto the power of ‘looking good’. Underneath all this, I’m just a teenager with a mind from New Jersey and a heart for New York City who loves sitting on the couch eating green tea ice cream while watching Project Runway. My style of clothing is what I’d like to call ‘cool confidence’; I am absolutely head over heels for bold prints and colors, unique textures and quirky pieces. I’m definitely a fanatic over sales at the mall especially at my favorites like Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters or Topshop. In my personal dictionary, fashion has become a synonym to life because it certainly is something I live for.
So here’s the plan:
Mondays- Global Fashion News
Tuesdays- My Precollege Experience
Wednesdays- My own OOTD’s (Outfit of the day for those of you who aren’t fashion lingo savvy, although I’m sure if you’re reading this blog, you know)
Thursdays- D.I.Y Ideas & Tips
Fridays- Fashionable Humans of F.I.T
Trust me when I say this will be the best ice cream you’ll ever have. Stay classy & fashionable; stay tuned,
The Style Saviour
