In case you didn’t already know, CollegeFashionista is all about empowering the students of today to build their career and start making connections in college that will last them a lifetime. As a team, that’s been our goal from the beginning—we are dedicated to helping women help themselves when it comes to their dreams.
When we started CollegeFashionista seven years ago, it was so much different than it was today. There were only a few Style Gurus, Instagram was barely a thing, and the CollegeFashionista team was only two people working out of their apartments. Fast forward, and things have changed quite a bit. However, our goal of helping students build a career remains the same.
In the past, Style Gurus have been contributors to CollegeFashionista’s website and social media channels. They’ve been the face of our brand, and the glue that holds us all together. We would be nowhere without them. Yet with more Style Gurus comes new (but good!) challenges, and so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to ensure that we not only tackle the challenges but make our mission stronger and more effective in the process. That’s where the new CF comes in.
This fall, we are beyond excited to introduce our brand new program for Style Gurus. We will now be providing our community of career driven college students with an incredible, in-depth curriculum on every topic and skill they need to know to succeed in the fashion industry. Our Style Gurus will be members of a community in which they will be able to learn everything they know to land their dream jobs—but it doesn’t end there. Along with our new curriculum, we will also be rolling out our new Fellowship programs this September, which will provide learning opportunities for students interested in editorial, photography, graphic design, social media, and marketing and PR. These Fellowships are available to students who have been Style Gurus for a semester or more who wish to delve deeper into a subject they’re interested in and learn straight from industry professionals. They’ll also have the chance to start building a portfolio of work and get daily feedback on how to continue making their work stronger.
Basically, our new programs are a way for us to provide more in-depth, meaningful lessons and feedback to each and every student that joins our community—and we couldn’t be more excited.
In essence, CollegeFashionista will remain the same—a company whose main goal is to help students around the world achieve the dream that we all once had—to land a job and build a career in fashion. The only thing changing is that we’re getting better at it.
