As you may have already noticed, by that big banner right above my blog, I made it to the Second Round of Nokia + Elle Search for Style Correspondent. The challenge for this round is to write an essay of 250 words or less about why I should be 1 of the 8 winners to be flown into NYC to cover the Fashion Week, here’s my entry for you guys to read
Standing at 5-foot-tall with a waistline of 22”, I was told I would never make it into the fashion world. Three years later and here I am, on a competitive journey to be the Next Style Correspondent for New York Fashion week.
I say limitations do not only spark creativity, but it also fuels one’s passion and love for his craft. I live in Vancouver where XS is still too big, and size 5 shoes for men are unheard of, but that never stopped me. I cut, bead, sew and glue things together and often walk around downtown Vancouver wearing head-turning outfits.
Fresh from finishing a program in Interactive Media and Communication, I have the skills to flourish in my chosen field. I’m the one-man-team behind littleFashionisto.com; my duties include hand coding the website, designing the layout, styling my photo shoots, taking the photos (with the help of a tripod) and finally editing all the photos and videos. I have the heart for anything that has to do with fashion. I love what I do and I enjoy every bit of it.
My dedication, creativity and perseverance paired with my aesthetic sensibilities and deep understanding of the fashion world would make me an exceptional style correspondent. If I were given the chance, I will bring NYFW to you in a unique perspective with a lot of fresh insights – an intimate and humanistic approach that will allow Elle readers to be in close proximity to the events of fashion week.
