STYLE GURU BIO: Madeline Castleman

My name is Madeline Castleman, and I am currently a junior at Baylor University majoring in Apparel Merchandising with a minor in Business Administration. I am so excited to be writing for College Fashionista this semester! What an incredible opportunity this will be to further improve my written and communication skills. Fashion has such a strong presence on Baylor’s campus, and I can’t wait to highlight it on CollegeFashionista.

Ever since I was a young girl, I have been a fashion enthusiast and have always had a keen eye. I grew up with the dream to become a designer and make my own line one day in hopes of seeing it appear at New York Fashion Week. Through sewing classes, seminars and different courses I have taken at Baylor, my dream has shifted quite tremendously. When I entered college I was a design major and now as I near graduation, I have hopes of being employed as a buyer. I am in love with the business side of fashion and can’t wait to dive deep into it.

Not only do I love all things fashion but also I love to write. I started my own blog at the age of 15 and since then have changed the name and layout too many times to count. I love writing about things that excite me. Photographing people and places that bring me inspiration makes me so giddy. Once I get started taking pictures, you can’t stop me. I have yet to take a photography class, but it is on my list of things to do in the near future. No matter the post, I am always proud of the work I publish and the dedication and passion behind it.

I can’t wait for the spring semester to kick off and began working alongside my fellow Style Gurus. Make sure you check out my posts each Wednesday for the latest fashion seen at Baylor University.
