What do you love about fashion?
Fashion is one of the most dynamic industries, as it requires managers to be constantly aware of the changing conditions of the market. This includes following trends, studying consumer shopping behaviors, developing better strategies for managing supply chains, and understanding how to market innovation and manage creativity. Fashion is never boring because it is constantly evolving.
Your dream job?
My dream job is to manage a luxury fashion company with a global presence.
Are you going abroad/thinking about it?
I am currently studying abroad in Milan, the fashion and business capital of Italy.
What are you inspired by right now?
Recently, I have been very inspired by my travels in Italy. I was in Rome last weekend and all of the layers of history in the city completely blew me away; I have a newfound obsession with white marble anything. To counterbalance my culture shock, I recently watched “American Beauty” to return to that Americana familiarity of suburbia. I love Mena Suvari’s deep fear of being boring.
Favorite class at Cornell thus far?
Besides all of my great fashion classes, I really enjoyed taking my freshman writing seminar on semiotics.
Are you a fan of The Bieber?
His music is way too catchy for this to be a fair question, but that hair… his poor neck is going to break if he keeps flipping his bangs to the side.
Favorite fashion movie?
“Zoolander” would be the hilarious option; “Coco avant Chanel” would be more serious. And the scene in “Gone with the Wind”, although technically not a fashion-themed movie, where Scarlett O’Hara walks down the stairs in the gown made of curtains - fantastic moment for fashion.
Favorite Spring 2011 Collection
What are you loving right now in your closet?
Grey suede - black leather ankle boots from Zara; black lace pattern stockings, and my ever expanding scarf collection.
