Hello all of you glorious, fashion-fascinated lasses and lads! Good news: The application period for the 2014-2015 BP. Fashion Board opened yesterday. What’s the Fashion Board, you ask? The Fashion Board is a group of high-school students that meets once a month at your local Nordstrom BP. department. At the meetings you get to go behind the scenes in the fashion industry, connecting with fashion pros and making stylish friends your own age.
Part of the application process requires you to complete a fashion project. Last year I created a leather-bound lookbook of some of my favorite outfits, and decorated it with fake flowers, confetti stars and sketches. To inspire you as you consider your own application project, here are a few shots from my 2013 masterpiece:
The first section of my lookbook was a vintage-inspired spread featuring my letterman jacket and velvet loafers. The movie Super 8 inspired me to take pictures down by the train tracks with me holding my own super 8 camera.
The second section was inspired by Marc Jacobs. Here I showed my more Margot Tenenbaum-y side (who, as we all know, is the daily inspiration for my life).
I encourage you to apply for the fashion board, it is truly an incredible experience that allows you to make wonderful connections and friendships. Be inspired by your fashion icons and favorite movies, and put your heart into your fashion project.
Remember, the application period is open now! Find out more about the Fashion Board and get ready to apply.
