Recently i have started my new internship with College Fashionista which requires me to take street style photos of individuals and write an article accompanying them. Theres a different style guru for each day of the week stated below i will be covering Spotlight section each Wednesdays asking people questions and their thoughts on fashion. Below founder of CF, Amy Levin describes her vision and gives in sight to what College Fashionista is about.
What is CollegeFashionista?
CollegeFashionista.com is a fashion blog site for those who are passionate about the latest college fashion styles and trends on campuses around the world. This website allows students and other young adults to view photographs of what their peers are wearing around college campuses and gain valuable insight and tips to incorporate these looks into their own college fashion wardrobes.
As Founder, I have had a lot of exposure to the concept of street fashion. From my time abroad and summers interning in Los Angeles and Chicago as well as extensive international traveling, I saw how fashion was evolving and the sidewalk was quickly being transformed into the latest version of the runway. The new age models were real individuals with unique voices and perspectives on style.
Upon arriving back on campus my senior year at Indiana University in 2009, I realized that the newest fashion influencers were more accessible than ever. These fashion visionaries were my classmates. Whether they splatter painted their biology lab coats or came to lecture in that season’s must have boots, I wanted to give a voice to this current era of trendsetters. My concept- give college students a medium through which their cunning eyes for the latest college fashion trends can be showcased and give them the ability to administer advice on how to adapt it to student life. And so, CollegeFashionista.com was born.
Each day follows a different format and topic on which the Gurus will be writing. Monday is Style Advice- a new tip to incorporate into your wardrobe to start off your week with style. Tuesday is Let’s Hear it for the Boys a focus on the fashionable men around college campuses. Wednesday is Fashionista/o Spotlight, a focus on a student on campus and their opinion on fashion. Thursday is All About Beauty spotlighting runway beauty trends worn by CollegeFashionistas. Friday is Accessories Report as well as Fashion From Abroad.
What makes college fashion so exciting is the unique perspectives that each person possesses. The website features columns written by a variety of different people, with a spectrum of fashion views, all attending universities across the world. However, at the heart of it, most students experience the same constraints that come with college life. The Style Gurus make college fashion accessible by adapting to those restrictions and appreciating the four years one has in their life to really experiment and play with style.
