Style Guru Bio: Alicia Brunker

As long as I can remember I have been interested in fashion. At age three I would walk around in oversized high-heels that belonged to my mother and drape myself in an abundance of jewelry that caught my eye. That passion continued on throughout the years, and now I am studying Apparel Merchandising and Business Marketing at Indiana University. I hope that my creativity continues to grow and will inspire the fashion industry in the future.

I am constantly flipping through the pages of Elle and Vogue in search of new ideas and inspiration to add to my personal style, but I do not always follow the trends presented to me in the magazines the exact way they are laid out on the glossy pages. Instead, I try to incorporate particular trends I identify with in my classic, everyday wardrobe, yet I still choose to stick with more traditional pieces adding a bit of flair with my accessories or pieces with embellishment and ruffles. I am drawn to timeless fashion and style icons. The little black dress adorned with pearls worn by the classic Fashionista, Audrey Hepburn, in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite looks. On the other end of the spectrum, I admire the more daring Fashionista who mixes bold colors and patterns creating a more modern, high fashion look. I believe fashion is an outlet for expression, every outfit can tell a story without saying a word conveying the wearer’s personality and what he/she is all about. This spring, I hope to bring new insight and ideas to all you fashion lovers out there with the trends happening around Indiana University’s campus.
