This junior at Laguna Beach High School was selected to take over FC because she is 100% dedicated!
Tell us a bit about yourself: I have always had a passion for fashion. I am typically shy and so I express myself through fashion. My hobbies include exercising, designing, hanging with my besties and shopping! You could say that I am a shopaholic. I have always had an interest in modeling, and have been encouraged to pursue it. I am planning to model by the end of my junior year. It'll be a great way for me to get involved in the fashion industry and meet people. I spend most of my time with my six pets—two dogs, two bunnies, and two cats!
How did you get involved in Fashion Club? I attended club round up in hopes of finding the perfect fashion club for me. I found out there was a FIDM Fashion Club and I was beyond excited! I started attending every meeting and became friends with the president. She chose me to take over the club because she knew I would be 100% dedicated and devoted.
What kinds of activities do you do at your club meetings? I give lessons on different FIDM majors, and I do fashion designing activities and games. I also assign projects, for example, assigning members to make something new out of something old or make something out of non-fabric materials. Every meeting I bring in treats! Sometimes I make cake, cookies, cupcakes, or I order pizza.
What is one of your proudest accomplishments? Easily, my proudest accomplishment is becoming the FIDM Fashion Club President!
What's a fashion trend you're loving right now? I absolutely love fringe. I think fringe handbags and shoes are to die for. Fringe accessories is a easy way to spice up a plain top and jeans. Another absolute favorite trend is tie-dye—it's fun, crazy, different, and ageless! During summer, I love wearing tie-dye bikinis and shirts.
Who do you follow on Insta and Pinterest, for fashion inspo? I follow Selena Gomez, The Jenner sisters, and The Kardashian sisters. I love how casual but stylish Selena's style is. She's not trying to impress people with designer things; she's just her normal self. The Kardashian and Jenner sisters are great to follow in order to see the trends that are hot right now. I like to take inspiration from their designer clothing and make my own reasonably priced version of it.
Do you have plans to attend FIDM? I plan to attend FIDM when I graduate high school. I am applying for as many scholarships as possible. I am not sure what I would major in right now, but, I am trying to figure it out.
What are your career goals? After graduating FIDM I want to be an intern for a designer and get involved in the fashion industry. I want to work my way up and hopefully find career opportunities. I think it would be so amazing if I designed and owned my own clothing or bikini line!
Anything else you'd like to share? In addition to being the FIDM Fashion Club President, I am taking Fashion ROP next semester and all of my senior year. Fashion ROP also includes an internship. I plan to just do regular Fashion ROP this year and Fashion ROP with an internship my senior year!
