Hello, Fashionista and Fashionistos! My name is Tiffany Chiu and I am currently attending the University of California, Santa Cruz to pursue my passion for psychology. Right now, I am currently finishing my last week of freshman year, and what better way to transition into summer than to intern for CollegeFashionista? After writing for Gaia Magazine at UCSC, I realized my love for capturing genuine stories and moments through writing and photography. This summer, I am beyond excited to write for ALL IN THE DETAILS column every Friday!
To tell you more about myself, I was raised in Taiwan and moved to Southern California when I was eight years old. You can imagine this experience to be pretty intimidating for someone so coy like me. However, I was able to witness fashion trends in both of these countries at a young age, and I was inspired. In high school, I became addicted to finding my sense of style. I subscribed to both American and Asian fashion magazines to see what celebrities were wearing. In the beginning of my fashion exploration, I merely replicated inspired outfits; overtime, I realized that this process of recreating different attires into my closet allows me to create my individual style. I would describe my clothing choices as laid back with a variety of mixed patterns and colors. My favorite pieces in my wardrobe are my patterned jeans as well as my comfy, oversized cardigans. I also enjoy wearing statement accessories to put a unique spin on my outfits.
I’m grateful to have the opportunity to report and document amazing styles from my hometown in Southern California this summer. I hope that you will enjoy the content of my work as much as I enjoy creating it. Cheers to summer 2014!
