Hey Fashionistas! My name is Jessica McGettigan and I am a senior (*sob*) public relations major at East Carolina University.
It’s really hard for me to define my style as one specific trend because I love a little bit of everything! I guess the best way to describe it is kate spade meets Marc Jacobs meets Balmain: a little prep, boho and edge all wrapped into one. Growing up in the north (shout-out to my Philly readers!) and going to school in the south was definitely another major influence on my personal style, as well.
I have loved the fashion industry since I was a little girl (who else played dress up religiously?). As I got older I began subscribing to fashion magazines such as Teen Vogue and InStyle, and would race home from school to check the mail to see if my magazines had come in yet.
I always knew that I wanted to work in fashion, but I was never really sure if that career was possible. This past summer, however, I actually lived my lifelong dream when I interned for designer KAL RIEMAN in New York City. So if any of you ever doubt whether a dream is possible or not, take it from me, it’s as possible and real as you want it to be!
I am so excited to be a part of the CollegeFashionista team this semester and I’m looking forward to sharing my love of the fashion industry with all of you. I can’t wait to connect with people that share my same passions and interests and I definitely can’t wait to see some great fashion this spring!
