Guten Tag, my beautiful Fashionistas and Fashionistos! My name is Josh Kongmany and I will soon be entering my seventh semester at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I’m majoring in Germanic Literature and Culture. My university boasts a long line of Style Gurus and I look forward to representing my campus for another semester during my time with CollegeFashionista. I’m happy to inform you that this summer, I will be writing posts for the FASHIONISTA/O SPOTLIGHT segment. I cannot wait to show you guys the unique styles that UNC has to offer!
My interest in fashion first started as a journey to define my personal style. The pages of GQ and Esquire helped me tame and polish my rough exterior. Constantly evolving, my style changes with the seasons and changes to mark the beginnings of new chapters in my life. Today, my style is characterized by simplicity and class. The pieces in my wardrobe are versatile ones that provide me with flexibility when I craft outfits in the morning. I intentionally avoid heavy patterns, but I do focus a lot of my energy on playing with color and fabric. My outfits are never complete without some jewelry and a bag. This journey is far from over; my style will continue to redefine and refine itself.
By following my passion, I am able to practice what I love doing: blogging, taking photographs and writing—hobbies that act as outlets to my creative soul. Nothing makes me happier than capturing beauty in a photograph or in a piece of writing and sharing it with others. It’s truly a blessing to be a part of the CollegeFashionista family and I am excited to connect with readers around the world through my passion.
