As the countdown to graduation nears single digits I am trying to appreciate all of my last moments at Moore. While I look forward to a normal sleeping schedule, I know I will miss all-nighters in the studio with the twenty other women graduating from Moore’s fashion design program. When describing my college experience to others I often joke that it has been more “Girl Interrupted” than “Girls Gone Wild.” While I did not get to experience the thrill of collegiate athletics or the luxury of professors who don’t take attendance, I am nothing but grateful for the hours spent bent over sewing machines and the conversations in the smoking courtyard. I never experienced Greek Life, but I would argue that in many ways Moore is a sorority; even if the average Moore student would protest this label. I was lucky to find myself in a second community shortly into my college career.
I began writing for CollegeFashionista my sophomore year, when I only wore sky high heels. Since my first article my hatred of flats has diminished and my understanding of photography has drastically improved. I am grateful for the endless opportunities CollegeFashionista has given me, and I am perhaps the most grateful for the introduction of explorer view which is the ultimate solution to the “I have nothing to wear” problem.
After graduation I hope to dress every day like I’m trying out for CollegeFashionista’s homepage, and I hope to experience a full night’s sleep. In the fall I’ll be moving to Los Angeles to design clothes made to make you as nostalgic as I am.
