I love fashion because it is one of the most beautiful forms of self expression. Everyone has their own personal style and I think that's amazing! Fashion is a way to be more confident in your own skin. I also admire the art that goes into each design.

I started an official FIDM Fashion Club at my school in Pennsylvania so that I could encourage and inspire students to look into the fashion field. I wanted students to have a place they could go to feel like they fit in. Fashion is often ignored in the small town I come from, and I didn't want it to be like that anymore.

I would describe my personal style as edgy. My go to outfit is almost always complete with my dad's leather jacket from the ‘80s. I like to pair leather details with black and white pieces. Occasionally I will go for a baggier boyfriend-style look. I love experimenting with different types of clothing. I also like to incorporate vintage into my style a lot. If I'm going out or dressing up, I go for an edgy little black dress!

My favorite fall fashion trend is definitely the crazy cool denim skirts going around. It's so much fun to take a skirt that has been around for so long and put new modern twists on it! At the moment, my favorite outfit is a denim skirt that I pair with a black turtleneck and black ankle boots. It is really simple, but I usually finish it off with some rings, my leather jacket, and a bold lipstick.

Elie Saab is my favorite designer right now. Nearly everything he designs is gorgeous. I am always blown away by the details and embellishments on each new piece he puts on the runway.

As far as everyday shopping, my favorite places are Nasty Gal, H&M, Urban Outfitters, and Pixie Market.
