Fashion Spotlight


How would you describe your style?

Unexpected and perhaps a crossroads between feminine and anti-feminine.

How would you say your style fits in with the Colgate community?

I try to definitely stand out and be unique. That’s kind of my self-expression. Just in the fact that I like a lot of what people are wearing, but I try to be a little creative and add elements to what’s already there, just to make it my own.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I get a lot of my inspiration from street fashion in Japan. It’s very unique and avant-garde. The people there are more willing to go to the extra mile to be individualistic, and I really admire their bravery in fashion.

What are some of your favorite stores or brands?

I guess one of my favorite stores would be Urban Outfitters. Other than that, I like to go to a lot of different places and look for different inspirations.

What would you say is your seasonal statement at the moment?

My beret, just because it’s warm and it also makes a statement.

Name a couple of your favorite bands.

The Beatles would definitely be number one, then Bon Iver and Iron and Wine.
