STYLE GURU BIO: Jasmine Drummond

September 2nd, 2015 at 2:00am

Hello, Fashionistas of the world! Jasmine Drummond, here, coming to you from University of Maryland, College Park. I am a dedicated junior Communications, Public Relations major. A few things you should know about me are I am a proud terp, I am dedicated to my career path and, of course, I love fashion. I am involved in fashion both inside and outside of school.

My career goal is to become a Fashion Marketing Agent. I want to serve as a third party marketing and public relations specialist for undiscovered fashion professionals. I have a lot of fashion experience, and work hard everyday to continue to grow and learn more.

At UMD, I am part of the Echelon Fashion Society, the only modeling society on campus. We do both runway and choreography at our shows throughout the year. I have held the executive board position as Marketing Director and Photographer for three years now. I enjoy being a part of The Elite Echelon Fashion!

Outside of school, I have had a lot of experience in the fashion industry. I have volunteered at the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week for fall/winter 2015 season and will return for the spring/summer 2015 season. This past summer was spent calling donors, sponsors, registering and interviewing the production team and event planning for Baltimore Fashion Week 2015. I currently hold the position of Social Media Specialist for Baltimore Fashion Week. I will also be volunteering at DC Fashion Week during this upcoming fall season.

If I had to describe my style, I would say “unique” and “outside of the box.” I do not like wearing what I see everyone else is wearing. I very rarely shop at big, name brand stores. I LOVE thrift stores and consignments shops. I am a strong believer in recycling clothes, and finding the best and most unique looks from a thrift or consignment shop. I would also describe myself as a frugal shopper; to say it nicely, I do not like spending a lot of money. Last, I always shop out of season because I think that’s when you can get the best deals. My everyday look would usually consists of ripped denim, a cute graphic T-shirt, maybe a colorful blazer, black lipstick (it’s my favorite lip color) and a hot pair of heels. My first piece of style advice is to wear what I call “feel good clothes.” Everyone has different “feel good clothes,” but it’s simply a favorite outfit that you put on that puts more pep in your step or makes you walk with your head a bit higher. Anything that makes you feel more confident is the best trend of all!

Enough about me, let’s talk University of Maryland style. Stay tuned!
