STYLE GURU BIO: Melina Watson

Hi there, welcome to my virtual escape zone where I can write and post about all these wonderful styles I get to witness. My name is Melina Watson and I am a freshman at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). We are located in the heart of New York City, so I’m constantly surrounded by inspiration and individuality. I will be majoring in film and media.

Now you might be thinking, “Why is she a Style Guru if she’s into film?” Well to answer your question, I’ve always loved fashion and the power of fashion. I plan on intertwining my love for films, fashion and making magic. I love chocolate, coffee and the sunrise. You’d be surprised how much your mood can change just by watching the sunrise and sunset.

Let me share a few of my favorite quotes that definitely inspire me. As Velvet Paper once said, “Fashion is art and you are the canvas.” I believe fashion is subjective. There is no right way of doing things and everything is open to interpretation. Of course, there are trends and certain rules people like to follow but I say wear what you want and how you want to wear it. Fashion should be fun, not a competition. As Kimora Lee said, “Always dress like you’re going to see your worst enemy.” Also, this is a quote I like to live by.

Never feel pressure to do or dress in any certain way where you feel uncomfortable, but always kill it at everything you do! I hope I can inspire you to feel comfortable and free in your clothing.
