Describe your personal style?
I love mixing different fabrics and mixing edgy with chic like rough leather and printed fabrics. I also like mixing high end pieces with affordable clothing. My style is all about mixing and layering. 

Where do you go on your breaks from class?
I usually stay in the classroom during breaks. I enjoy being ahead of the game and finishing my projects before the deadline. If I do go on break, I usually run across the street to Dunkin’ Donuts and get coffee.

What is your favorite thing about FIT?
I love how excited everyone is about fashion here! Everyone knows exactly what they want to do here, and we’re all working towards our goals with ambition.

Who or what inspires you?
I’m very easily inspired. I get inspiration from artwork and nature. I’m also inspired by the cultures of people, their customs, and over all way of life.

What do you want to do after you graduate from college?
After I graduate I plan on getting a job working for a magazine. I want to style for photo shoots and possibly style for celebrities. I want a job that is exciting and keeps me on the edge of my seat.

In The Halls: Bruno

Student: Bruno (17) Queens, NY
Program: Saturday Live
Precollege Course: HAC 63: Careers in Advertising and Marketing Communications

Describe your personal style?
My style is unique, innovative, edgy. I am not the typical fashionista you’d see walking down 27th Street. I dress to express instead of dressing to impress. When people ask me what my fashion secret is I usually let them know that it’s not about the brands I wear, it’s about confidence. Style is a personal choice.

Where do you go on your breaks from class?
 During my breaks from class I try to explore the college. I might go to Gigi Cafe; they have a great selection of foods. Their 10% discount for FIT Students is convenient and saves us a couple of cents. Hey!– It’s college money we’re talking about.

What is your favorite thing about FIT?
 FIT is the school where people express who they really are. I was looking for a college that was far away from the typical school that emphasized just on Math and Science. I found FIT. Pursuing a higher degree of education is only valid, in my opinion, if I study what I enjoy. Success will come eventually.

Who or what inspires you?
New York City inspires me. This city has such a positive energy… not only because of the lights at Times Square… New Yorkers have a sympathy for freedom– which allows us to express our minds and advance in creativity.

What do you want to do after you graduate from college?
I want to become successful in the Fashion Business Industry. Talent is just the beginning.
