The CollegeFashionista Mentorship Program

One of the greatest things about CollegeFashionista is seeing where our Style Gurus land post-college. They leave the “CF nest” as I like to call it with confidence, experience and skills as they begin their journey towards adulting. Not shocking, many of our Style Gurus go on to hustle, shine and make a name for themselves in the industry, even at a young age.

As part of CollegeFashionista’s commitment to empowering our readers and Style Gurus, we have launched the CollegeFashionista Mentorship Program. We have paired some of our current rockstar Style Gurus with CollegeFashionista alumni to act as mentors. While these mentor-mentee pairings will be meeting throughout the semester (and beyond), we will be checking-in with them throughout the year to see what they have learned from one another through the process and sharing this insight with you the reader!

Get to know the 2016 CollegeFashionista Mentors and Mentees below! We can’t wait to see what this #RAD group of current and former Style Gurus achieve!
