Hello to my fellow CollegeFashionistas! My name is Alle King and I am Junior, Journalism major at the University of Iowa. I’m very involved on campus, in Gamma Phi Beta sorority, and representing the Iowa Hawkeyes every day. I hope for a future in fashion public relations, and am so excited to have connected with CollegeFashionista at this crucial time of expanding my knowledge in the fashion industry. I look forward to representing the variety of style and fashion trends that Iowa City has to offer, while also sharing my fashion knowledge throughout campus as your personal Style Guru.
Since I can remember, each morning has started in my closet deciding what outfit I’ll be putting together for the day. I’ve always made a hobby out of following the latest fashion trends, trying to stay creative with my style, and being my own fashion icon. I have a lot of fun experimenting with different outfits and am always searching for the next best item to add to my ever-growing wardrobe.
As one of three sisters, I’ve grown up sharing three closets, all with unique but similar style. We’ve shared the joy that making fashion a hobby can bring, meanwhile becoming closer each year, as we’ve grown into the exact same pant, shirt, and shoe size. Having an honest source in the experimentation of new fashion trends is key, and my sisters have been just that. I actually think I may confide in my sister’s fashion opinions more than I would in my favorite fashion Icons and designers. They have been the root and creative mind behind every purchase I’ve made, followed by piecing together the perfect outfit.
Next to my sisters, I would say my fashion inspiration is stemmed from the everyday people surrounding me. I always have my eyes peeled for parts of an ensemble or specific items that catch my eye on the street., and then taking that idea home and recreating it into my own style. On the more professional side of the fashion world;
I am a regular reader of Vogue, follow many fashion blogs, and look forward to the look-books for an upcoming season more than the season itself. Some of my favorite designers include Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Betsey Johnson, Jeffrey Campbell, and Nicole Miller. My favorite store of all time, constantly putting a dent in my bank account is Urban Outfitters.
My fashion inspiration stems from all around me, and I am greatly looking forward to adding CollegeFashionista into the mix. In the hopes of a future career promoting fashion in all forms, I am thrilled for the experience ahead, as one of your newest Style Guru’s on campus!
