Hi all Fashionistas!

I’m Maria Alin and I come from Stockholm, Sweden. I’m living in New York City attending Fashion Institute of Technology. I’m majoring in fashion business management and will now begin my second semester at FIT! It will be so much fun for me to be able to share all the inspiring people and outfits found at FIT, and I’m looking forward to this semester!

I have always loved fashion, and I am so happy that I’m now able to follow my dream and to have the possibility to live in NYC. The summer after high school in Sweden, I went to Milan to attend a Fashion Stylist course at a fashion school there. Then I worked at H&M for a year before going to New York. I also spent three months in Central America traveling with my friends.

My passion started early even though I many times have ended up looking completely ridiculous, but that’s a part of it all! My hang ups are jackets. I love them and what they can do to an outfit. Also, shoes, bags and accessories of course. It’s all in the details!

Besides fashion, I also love working out; running, gym and yoga are my favorite things to do. I also love hanging out with my friends, especially to go out and for brunch! You gotta love brunch. Then I, of course, love chocolate. The city also have so much to offer, so there is no time for just sitting home; everyday has something to offer. I’m a very happy and positive girl. I hope to be able to spread that vibe here at CollegeFashionista!
