Androgyny and Crop Tops

As College comes to an end, every student is often scrambling to get their projects completed. Especially the many FIT students. I absolutely love being involved in the creative process for everyone’s final projects, and I often volunteer myself to model for their assignments. This weekend, there seems to be a theme in the assignments I’m helping with. Androgyny. It brings me so much joy to see that some people out there have so much interest in androgyny; definitely, makes my job so much easier too. Anyways, I’ll be sharing some photos from these 2 photoshoots since they fall into my world with such ease. I’m honestly so excited to share them, no matter how controversial it may seem for some people.
In other news, The obsession with having my stomach out has continued on and it’s become more of an attempt to make people realize just how simply someone can break gender norms without looking too crazy. I often like to break these gender norms especially because I can often do it with such ease. So I say, bring male crop tops back! Rock it without feeling like it’s attacking your masculinity, There’s no need to have such fragile masculinity in this day and age.

Just a little rant with Mikey

FIT has taught me so many things within the past 2 semesters.
I’ve developed amazing friends and amazing contacts.
I’ve completely grown as a person.
But as the spring semester comes to an end, I can’t help but to feel like its gone by all too fast. It’s almost like just yesterday I was moving into my dorm last August, a completely nervous wreck, moving back to the city for the first time and taking in everything Chelsea has to give. I can’t say that I miss living in New York, because I definitely don’t, but I can say that I miss all the opportunities this city throws at you. I can’t wait to go home for the summer… But what’ll happen in that time?
Will I continue to grow and continue my efforts to help my career?
Or will it just be at a 3 month stand still?
I definitely hope that all of my efforts won’t be put on hold and I’ll still have as much focus and inspiration as I do living and breathing fashion school.
3 weeks left and only time will tell what’s to come.

Saturated Springs

Spring Break has come and gone
Midterms have ended and a week of relaxation came and went… well for some.
I personally chose to stay at school, in an attempt to get more work done and continue to work on my success instead of over-relaxing at home. The week for me is filled with days of silence and typing. I love it! Most of my roommates have gone home and I got the serene peace and quiet of new york… well as quiet as it can be living in the heart of Manhattan… Now it’s back to classes and the countdown for summer can officially commence. Happy easter all!
