STYLE GURU BIO: Emilia Korte

Hi Fashionistas! My name is Emilia Korte and I will be coming to you live from Indiana University in the beautiful Bloomington, Indiana. I’m a Journalism major, with focuses in Advertising and Public Relations. I also have a minor in Apparel Merchandising and aspire to be a writer for a fashion publication in the future (Vogue, HMU). I have been absolutely addicted to fashion since the womb. Starting as a self-proclaimed princess and actual dancer, costumes and glitter were basically life. Then, as I matured, and slowly eased off the tutus, I started to mimic the looks of my peers at dance and school.

This will be my first time officially sharing my love of fashion with an audience—and let me say, I am thrilled. My current interests lie in the realm of high fashion. I adore models such as, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Olivia Palermo, as well as the designs by Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Zuhair Murad and Elie Saab—and Beyoncé. Leave this page if you do not adore Beyoncé. She could wear Crocs and a pink boa and I would probably zip over to target to buy both. However, my fashion choices usually do not appear similar to the latter.

My style changes with my daily mood, but for fall, I like to focus on dark colors and sophisticated patterns, like you see in my absolute favorite pair of culottes. No wardrobe is ever complete without a simple nude heel and a fun pair of sunnies. This look is the essence of classic style, with a hint of scandalous flare (that open-back, though).

Have a RAD rest of your week Fashionistas/os!
