STYLE GURU BIO: Rachael Edwards

Hey, hey! My name is Rachael Edwards. I was born and raised in the vibrant city of Baltimore! I am a student at University of Baltimore studying integrated arts. Ever since I was little I have always been a little fashion birdie, attempting to never miss a beat when it comes to the latest trends and sometimes even breaking the rules a little (you know, doing a little pattern play before it was actually popular).  I am a professional vocalist, and sing all around Baltimore and Maryland in general. Just last summer, I was given the opportunity to sing all the way in Romania, and to top that off, many Romanians liked my style. It was a great experience!

I love funky clothing, I’d say that my style ranges from street/urban style to minimalistic outfits with a touch of chic-ness. I’m all for funky colors and patterns, but I don’t mind a neutral color palette and throwing on a bold lip. Recently, I’ve noticed that Afro-futurism has been influencing my style as of late, and I’m looking forward to exploring that more throughout the course of this internship.

Next to music, fashion is dear to my heart. Fashion is an art form, a way in which we can express ourselves. Just like a painting, we can play with textures, colors, layers and dimensions. It’s a whole world, and I can’t wait for you all to get a glimpse of my own!
