Hey everyone! My name is Avona and I am from Wilmington, Delaware, a very small and quiet state. Yet, there is nothing small nor quiet about my love and passion for fashion. I developed a love for fashion at a young age, from taking items out of my mom’s closet to reading Vogue while we were grocery shopping. I could not imagine how my life would be if fashion did not play such a tremendous part.

I am currently a freshmen at the Savannah College of Art & Design studying fashion design. I am beyond excited to see what it is like to be a part of the CollegeFashionista team. I would consider my style to be urban with a timeless and classy twist. You will catch me in a crop top and ripped jeans paired with a sleek trench coat and boots. No matter what the occasion, the first thing on my mind is what to wear or what not to wear. I have always been the friend that people go to for fashion advice. I am always on the lookout for new trends and what celebrity stylists are putting together. With my sharp eye for upcoming trends and tiny details, I can always nail a perfect look for myself and others. When I am not in class, I find myself looking up fashion blogs to see who’s wearing what and going to the mall to see what stores are carrying.

In the words of Coco Chanel, “I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.”
