It can be hard to dress chic and comfortable with the temperature dropping, but these three Fanshawe student have done just that.
You’ve spent time mixing and matching articles of clothing to look and feel great, only to discover you’ve either bundled up too much or not enough.
Nonetheless, Interrobang was on the hunt for students who paired their unique style with the everchanging season and stayed both classy and comfy.
Name: Batya Isaacson
Program: Fashion Design
Described Style: “Eclectic. It’s sort of all over the place, but it all fits together.”
Vintage with new, is how Isaacson would also describe what she wears.
Today’s Look: “I made my outfit,” Isaacson said. “I’m very into sustainability, so I like to take clothes and sort of take their old purpose and sort of make them into something new. So this is a pair of pants [as the sleeves] and the actual [top] I just took a boy’s shirt and cut it up.”
Preferred Shops: Thrift stores, H&M and little shops and places that one would find on a “fluke”. “Then I customize it as I want,” Isaacson said.
Name: Kennedy Couture
Program: Fine Art
Described Style: “It’s a little hipstery, definitely girly. I like to feel put together and cute.”
Today’s Look: Classified under the same terms, Couture used to describe her overall style. “I’m wearing a white, little wrap dress [from Urban Planet], it’s got little tiny black stipes on it. I’ve got my maroon knee high socks and my black lace up boots that go up to my knees. I got [my boots] from JustFab and I love them, and I’m supper happy with it.”
Preferred Shops: Forever 21, H&M and Urban Planet. “[Affordability] is really important to me because trends change a lot and I like to keep up with that kind of stuff.”
Name: Stephanie Faria
Program: Fashion Design
Described Style: “My style is kind of everywhere. Sometimes I’m more feminine, sometimes I’m more masculine, sometimes I’m more chic. It really depends on the day and the mood I’m in.” Faria makes a lot of costumes for Cosplay, along with Disney Princesses and everything in between. Her favourite costume she has created is Cinderella, which took her a long time to make, includes many crystals and lights up.
Today’s Look: Fierce.
Preferred Shops: “H&M and my new found love, Winners. I don’t know why I have never been to Winners before. [In general] wherever I see and I look in and I’m like ‘oh that looks cool’.” Affordability is also key for Faria.
