Program: Summer Workshops and Summer Live 2017

Precollege Course: HSX 084: Designing a Fashion Mini-Collection  

Describe your personal style: My personal style is very fun and slightly androgynous. I always love to mix in statement pieces with simple colors underneath. If I’m not wearing a statement piece, then I am wearing all black, because it makes me feel professional and powerful.  

Where do you go on your breaks from class?
On breaks I love to take in the Chelsea vibe, walking around or eating at the local restaurants. On days when I don’t have class, I can be seen shopping around the city.

What is your favorite thing about FIT? My favorite thing is the freedom of expression that FIT cultivates and encourages. This environment is extremely conducive to my creative self.

Who or what inspires you? My mom is my biggest inspiration. As a business woman, her attitude and powerful aura combine with her grace, stature, and humor to influence my personality and my desires.

What do you want to do after you graduate from college? After I graduate, I would love to pursue fashion design for older women in business.
