Style Guru Bio

Hello Fashionistas/os! My name is Cara Duffy and I am so excited to be reporting to you as a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. I am a transfer student at the Fashion Institute of Technology studying Fashion Merchandising Management. Located in the heart of the fashion world, New York City has inspiration everywhere. There is always something new to see or do and I can’t wait to share the unique styles at FIT with you writing about WHAT TO WEAR for every occasion.

I grew up moving around the East Coast of the United States. Originally I’m from Long Island, New York but my family now resides in a small town just outside of Tampa, Florida. Moving to New York City to work in the fashion industry had been my dream since I was only six-years-old and I am finally making that dream a reality! As a child my mom loved dressing me up head to toe in pretty dresses with huge bows to match almost everyday. I soon developed my own flare for fashion, my grandma taught me to sew and my interest started there. I strongly believe you can achieve anything you want in life with hard work and dedication.

Aside from fashion, I love traveling (spontaneous road trips are the best), photography, digging my head into fashion blogs or magazines and trying any new sport from long boarding to rock climbing. I hope to accomplish visiting all 50 states in the US and going abroad to other countries. My greatest inspirations on style have come from traveling and seeing how others dress according to culture and environment.

My style is constantly changing with my mood yet I always love solids, a pop of a bright color, daring to try crazy patterns and anything beachy. The Fashion Institute of Technology is filled with brave Fashionistas/os ready to try out any bold ensemble. I can’t wait to take you all on my fashion journey through the streets of New York spotting all of the latest and upcoming trends!
