STYLE GURU BIO: Kira Alexandra Berger

January 5th, 2015 at 2:00am

Hello lovely Fashionistas/os! My name is Kira Alexandra Berger and I’m a communications studies undergrad at Carleton University. I’m extremely passionate about fashion so I’m beyond thrilled to be a Style Guru intern this semester and the first (whoop!) from my university.

I was born in Toronto but grew up in Montreal, which is known for being a little slice of Europe ruled by Parisian influences. Fashion plays a major role in the city and I was lucky enough to grow up surrounded by some of the chicest men and women in the country. Montreal is also home to some amazing up-and-upcoming designers so shopping local was always like diving into a treasure chest.

Growing up, photos reveal that I always marched to the beat of my own drum, especially when it came to fashion, and I grew to develop my own unique sense of style that mixes high and low. I tend to gravitate towards neutral colors but a pop of color, along with a pair of large sunglasses, is my signature.

Opening my closet, you’ll find a mix of designer items (Betsey Johnson, Michael Kors and kate spade new york are favorites), boutique picks (Aritzia is one of my favorite stores) and articles from retailers that are student budget-friendly (particularly from Dynamite, Forever 21 and H&M). I’m a minimalist when it comes to jewelry but love a pair of standout heels or a luxurious handbag.

I can’t wait to show you how stylish my campus is and share my love of fashion with you!
