Hi! My name is Eric Hill and I am a communications and political science double major with a focus in public relations at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I am a fashion addict and have been reading publications such as Elle, Vogue and WWD since I was a child. Fashion has shaped who I am and given me a voice I didn’t think I had. It’s an art form and a silent communicator.
I’m so excited to be a part of CollegeFashionista for a second semester. It’s such a great platform and you really feel like you’re a part of a family. From a young age, I have always been obsessed with dressing up and becoming a new character. I have been in musical theatre and dance my whole life and my favorite part has always been the costumes. I really love couture looks and I appreciate out-of-the-box approaches. Everyone has their own personal style and its really interesting to see how people put things together and pair certain pieces.
My style, unlike my name, is anything but generic. I love color just as much as I love monochromatic themes. Vintage shops and thrift stores are my favorite places to shop because they always have the most unique pieces. I strive to standout and be unique. Fashion is ever changing and growing just like myself. Everyday isn’t the same and neither is my style. Some might call me a risk taker when it comes to fashion. I live for mixing prints and materials and the juxtaposition of it all. My influences come from the world around me. The best way to describe my style is a mixture of Cher and Dionne from the ’90s cult classic Clueless.
Fall is my favorite season, obviously because of the fashion, but also because the leaves change, the Starbucks menu changes and the holidays are right around the corner. I can’t wait to capture some of my favorite looks on campus this semester. I’m really stoked and I hope everyone has a RAD semester!
