Style Guru Bio: Lauren Acampora

My name is Lauren Acampora and I’m a sophomore at Duke University. I am writing to you from Fairfield, Connecticut, where I was born and raised. I first developed a love for fashion during my middle school years, when I would stay up late on Wednesday nights to watch the newest episode of Project Runway. My personal style is all about simple elegance, and neutral or pastel clothing are classic silhouettes dominate most of my closet space. However, I do get excited for the occasional, surprising pop of color – from bright maxi skirts (i.e. Jil Sander’s spring 2011 line) to neon accessories (like Celine’s orange mini luggage tote). I find inspiration in a number of style icons, from Grace Kelly to the Olsen twins. I also have an infinite number of favorite designers, but, at the moment, I’m especially crazy for Stella McCartney, Chloé, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, The Row, Jason Wu, and Reed Krakoff. I’m thrilled to be a part of the CollegeFashionista team this fall and I look forward to returning to Durham with my camera in hand – ready to capture all the amazing street-style fashion I see around campus this semester.
