Describe your personal style?
I personally dress from all departments of a store.  I don’t feel the need to restrict fashion to a certain gender.  To me, clothes are clothes, and I can rock it as long as it matches my makeup.
Where do you go on your breaks from class?
I always go to Starbucks!  I don’t sleep enough, ever!
What is your favorite thing about FIT?
My favorite thing about FIT is the accepting, supporting, and uplifting community of like-minded individuals who all come from different backgrounds but work together to learn.
Who or what inspires you?
Besides big influencers like Manny Mua, Jeffree Star, and James Charles, music inspires me the most.
What do you want to do after you graduate from College?
I want to continue my career in cosmetics marketing.  I have already started unlike most of my peers.

FIT for the Talented

We are currently learning how to make outfits using a denim, stripe pattern and a floral. As the designer, you have to be very specific and show where the body is and where the folds of the garnmet are.

The last 20 minutes of class, we went to the gallery to see the student’s mood board’s and outfits they made. The students are very talented, they make their croquis look alive.

Have you ever wondered how to make your drawings look more realistic? Shading is KEY!

Here is a look at the talented work of people who were accepted into FIT:
