STYLE GURU BIO: Latosha Stone

Hey Fashionista/os! I’m Latosha, and I’m a sophomore at Sinclair studying fine arts and majoring in illustration, but I create in various mediums such as photography, graphic design, painting, and sculpture. When I’m finished with my associates, I plan on transferring for a degree in fashion merchandising and design. One of the perks of being a designer and stylist is you get to be the person to set the trend, instead of being a follower.

I live in Ohio, but I travel as much as I can! This past summer I finally accomplished my lifelong goal of a cross-country road trip and back. I design and sell T-shirts for a living, and it has taken me to countless interesting places and new people. I can’t wait to graduate and see more of the world. Some of my favorite places are New York City and LA. I love all of the movement of a big city and the creativity and opportunity that flows through them.

Styling and taking street photos are some of my favorite hobbies, so this internship will help me grow and bring out my personal style. My style changes all the time, often blending different styles together to create a look all my own. I would describe this look as kawaii-street. For this outfit, I’m wearing a velvet babydoll dress from Kokopie Coco, a coordinating lavender moon choker, a cropped leather motorcycle jacket, Converse platforms, and space buns. I may or may not have been inspired by one of my favorite anime’s Sailor Moon! Velvet is also one of my favorite fabrics. I fall in love with anything made from it.

I’m super excited and grateful to have been chosen for this opportunity. Feel free to follow me on social media and subscribe to updates on my posts. I can’t wait to show more of the unique fashion around campus!
