The Style Insider
Hello all! I would personally like to welcome you to the newest column in The Wave - The Style Insider. It will cover everything new in fashion and run twice a month. It will offer tips and ideas to help you pick the right look for any occasion.
I became interested in fashion when I took a marketing class in high school. I currently attend LIM College, a Manhattan based school that focuses on the business aspect of fashion. I am a Fashion Merchandising major and will graduate in May of 2009. Through my studies, I learned about everything there is to know about the business side of the fashion industry. In addition, I learned about the design side, from textiles to visual merchandising. While attending college and learning the many perks of the fashion industry, my love for fashion grew and my interests expanded. My goal is to be a store manager at a high-end retailer like Oscar de la Renta or Chanel.
The idea of writing a fashion column actually came from the publisher of The Wave. I was not interested in writing about fashion; however, after much consideration and advice from family and friends, I decided to take on this wonderful challenge.
As the columnist for The Style Insider, I will concentrate on various types of fashion, including women's, men's and children's fashions. I will cover accessories, shoes and my personal favorite … BAGS! I will also cover beauty ideas from the latest hairstyles to the newest makeup tips. Don't know what to wear to that wedding coming up? I'll provide you with the newest ideas for every body type and every price range. Want the latest perfumes from the top designers? I'll tell you where to find them. And what about Fido? I will cover the newest pet fashions that will make your best friend even more irresistible. Forget about rummaging through magazines trying to find the latest styles and fads that are hitting the streets. Pick up The Wave and turn to The Style Insider and you will find all of the information you need to be trendy for the season.
I will accept questions, comments, concerns, advice and tips. I look forward to hearing from you and I hope you look forward to reading The Style Insider.
