As you may or may not already know but this past weekend I went to New York City for Teen Vogue’s Fashion University. It is a weekend where young adults from 16-21 can go and take classes with insiders in the fashion industry. I applied over the summer and then, I got accepted! It was such as great experience and I had an amazing time. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I thought would share a few with you.
On Friday night, they had a party at the Juicy Couture store on 5th Ave.
I walked to the Hudson Theater to check-in all by myself. I was quite impressed with myself for navigating the city so well.
My first class was Teen Vogue 101 where a panel of Teen Vogue experts answered any questions you had about Teen Vogue. From left: Amy Astley (Editor-in-Chief), Gloria Baume (Fashion Director), Eva Chen (Beauty and Health Expert), Danielle Nussbaum (Entertainment Expert), and Andrew Beven (Associate Director)
Me with designer Reem Acra. She had an amazing story and she is such a lovely person. I absolutely love her work.
My camera takes awful photos but here is a picture of Amy Astley with designer Thakoon. I absolutely love his feminine designs. You should definitely check him out!
My last class was with these young, amazing fashion bloggers. The one on the left is Lauren McGrath and on the left is Julia Frakes. Arabella Sicardi is not shown but they are all truly amazing. They are all so young and they have such established blogs. Yes, I do aspire to be them one day!
Again, my camera is awful so I apologize. Here is Diane von Furstenberg. She was an amazing speaker, and she is just gorgeous. I love her and her work and everything she stands for. The was truly inspiring .
For the graduation, Teen Vogue took the photos so I will post the picture of me with my diploma as soon as I receive it!
