It seems astounding that a new semester is about to begin. So many things have changed from the last time I was at Emory; there are new classes, new dorms – yet somehow, things also seem similar. Friendships have lasted the summer, decorations are being reused and my wardrobe remains grounded in pieces that have survived the year.
One of the greatest aspects that remains this semester is my love of all things fashion, a love that continues to grow and morph in ways I never would have thought. In my third semester writing for CollegeFashionista, I am excited to further explore trends and how designers work with their own pasts and presents to create collections that help shape the closets of the world. There is honestly no better way to see this impact than on a college campus, and I am ecstatic to continue documenting the style here at Emory.
Street style takes what is on the runways and makes it accessible in a way that high fashion generally neglects. It is created by anyone, regardless of wealth or influence. Is there anyone better to model this egalitarian fashion than college students? I am unbelievably revved up to participate and report on these influential peers of mine who create fashion in their day to day lives.
I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity again this semester and hope that I can help you all as my readers find your personal style the same way that writing has helped mine. Each semester, I feel more and more confident in the way I dress and in the risks that I take. I cannot wait to share this semester with all of you and know it will be a great one!
