Hi, my name is Devon Guralnick and I am a rising sophomore at GW majoring in International Affairs. Growing up in Hong Kong, Singapore and for the majority London along with travelling the world has influenced my curiosity with fashion. Each country has a style of its own, and what fascinates me is to see how they all merge when it comes to high fashion.
My style can be best described as a mix between edgy and clean cut. I love the classic style of fashion icons new and old such as Grace Kelly and Victoria Beckham, while another half of me simply adore the Oslen Twins and Kate Moss. Recently, the ever-growing blog community has been my go-to for the latest fashion advice, constantly being updated. One of my favorite blogs is Saucy Glossie because the writer does not simply take pictures and post them, but also shows where she was influenced and how she imitated the look. I have definitely learned many tips from the blogs, my mostly widely applied one being the use of accessories.
My staple pieces are definitely my ballet flats and scarves, which are all covered with an array of prints. My favorites being my French Sole cheetah print flats and my many cheetah print scarves from Zara. Along with College Fashionista, I am interning at Space N.K. in central London, which is luxury beauty retailer, offering products from facial care, to cosmetics and fragrances. I am working in the marketing department of the London offices, focusing on the website and store window displays. I believe fashion is a way of expression. I definitely use it everyday to embody my personality and one of my favorite quotes (actually that I discovered in a blog) by Oscar Wilde is “One should be either a work of art or wear a work of art”.
