Nice to meet you Fashionistas, my name is Kira Harada-Stone. I am so excited to be a brand new Style Guru for CollegeFashionista this spring! I am currently a sophomore at New York University and a soon-to-be transfer into NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study. I am planning on having a concentration in fashion journalism. At this very moment, I am in sitting in my warm and cozy home on the Big Island of Hawaii. Don’t let that fool you though; I am all about coats, sweaters and cute boots, all of which I will be hauling back to that cold, cold city with me this spring.
You’ll be hearing from me every Monday in my STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK columns. I am so excited to get to cover this section because I’ve always dug through fashion magazines looking for advice of my own. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved fashion magazines and one day it donned on me that I wanted to turn that passion into a career. My dream is to one day have my very own fashion magazine and I’ve headed thousands of miles away from home to follow it! New York City is the place to be for all things fashion-related and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
With my love for writing about fashion, comes a love for fashion itself. I can never seem to have enough clothes. I would describe my personal style as girly, romantic, classic and just a tad retro chic. I love light colors, high-waisted skirts, floral patterns, comfy flats, retro sunglasses and anything with a bow on it! I’m always looking out for new trends though; you can’t call yourself a Fashionista if you don’t have an open mind about all fashion.
I can’t wait to share everything the trendsetters of NYU have to offer. Look out, I see great things in our future!
