STYLE GURU BIO: Martha Eelman

Hello everybody! My name is Martha. This will be my third semester writing for CollegeFashionista, as well as my last semester of college (eek!). I will be graduating from Indiana University this spring with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Fashion Design. Currently, I run a personal fashion and lifestyle blog with my best friend, Lyuda Kusel, named Martha + Lyuda. Lyuda’s also a Style Guru, check her out! We’ve been best friends since seventh grade and are now college roommates. The blog came about as an outlet for our creative spirits. We’re different yet similar enough it creates the perfect balance!

As for the future, I am aspiring to use my degree to become a fashion stylist for editorial photoshoots and fashion brands. I have my fingers crossed to work for a smaller brand based out west! My style is very bohemian, yet more minimal on the days I have a lot going on. For a career, I’m hoping to find a brand that has a happy medium of boho, surf-skate and a touch of minimal! I love dressing for the transition between summer and fall. The balance between the two creates a solid mix of sweaters, dresses, boots and shorts. Sooo, maybe I should just live in So-Cal?

I’m so happy to have found the fabulous girl gang that makes up CollegeFashionista! The opportunities within the Style Guru internship are endless, whether it be contributing to brand collaborations or finding new social media connections. I’m so excited to start another semester filled of exciting times, with you all!
