Tell us a little about yourself: I’m a 17-year old girl full of ambition! Since I was little, I have always shown an interest in fashion. I would draw clothes, model pieces I’d make, and even go into the grocery store with little Disney princess high heel shoes. As I got older, I could only visualize myself working in fashion because I am passionate about the hard work that goes into the industry. My goal is to be successful by having my own brand, as well as inspiring others to not dream small but to believe the impossible can be accomplished.
Favorite outfit: My black fur leather jacket and black bodycon dress. I add in my favorite thigh high heels to complete the look!
How did you get involved in Fashion Club? I saw FIDM offered a Fashion Club program for high schools, and decided it was an amazing idea to participate. Being at a new school made it seem a bit scary, but when I attended 3 Days of Fashion at FIDM I was motivated to establish one as soon as possible.
What do you love the most about Fashion Club? Fashion Club allows creative people who share a similar vision and passion the opportunity to work in unison, with a shared goal to be in the fashion industry in different ways.
What kinds of activities do you have planned for the year? I plan on inviting FIDM Representatives come speak to the club, and I want to do fundraisers, DIYs, and a fashion show!
Do you have plans to attend FIDM? I am currently doing the FIDM Junior Advantage Program, I will be presenting my entrance project in April where I will fly out to California and find out if I have been accepted!
What are your career goals? I plan on creating my own brand for independent, successful women. I also want to be a positive public figure who influences women to take risks and use their voices.
