She hopes to experience all aspects of the industry, and is extremely grateful for the opportunity to write in fashion. She describes her approach to writing similar to how a designer creates – only using words instead of fabric to sculpt and convey. She is prodigiously proud of her closet and regularly abuses her clothing allowance. She can be reached at [email protected].
