During my summer in Paris I attended Istituto Marangoni, a world renown fashion school. I did a 3 week Fashion Image Consulting course which basically consisted in learning how to be someone’s personal shopper and also a magazine fashion editor.Our final project was to come up with an editorial for a fictitious fashion magazine. We had to create a theme, choose a model and shop for the clothes and props we would utilize for the photo shoot. My theme was 1950’s Jet Setter.
Here are some instagram pics of my final project.
And here are the final, edited versions of the pictures.

Proof Positive: What You Wear DOES Affect How You Think
By Connie Wang
I’m pretty sure that when Levi Strauss came up with the blue jean he didn’t imagine that the pants he had created to make it more comfortable for farm workers to work in their fields, would progress into a luxury item that every person would have in their closet. I assume the same of the people of Nike, Adidas, Reebok and other sneaker brands who probably never envisioned a sport shoe would become a status symbol as well.
But designers have proved us wrong once again. This season sneakers are not only in, but some of them contain heels and platforms so when they are worn they cause the same effect a stiletto would on a woman’s leg– minus the shoecide. And the prices of these shoes have catapulted way above than a pair of Louboutins would, making them not only trendy but a sort of anti-status symbol that any fashionista should include in her closet.
Here are a few examples of this season’s high end sneakers.
The whole ‘luxury sneakers’ frenzy began with Isabel Marant’s Willow sneakers. These include an inner platform that is not visibly apparent but the effect if causes on a girl’s leg is pretty much the same that a platform sandal would create. Endless amounts of celebrities, fashion bloggers, and trendy girls who can shed $770 for a pair of sneakers have been spotted wearing these Marant shoes.

A Celine Boston Bag. As soon as I make up my mind on which color I want it in, I’m getting it!!
A vintage Luis Vuitton travel trunk. Of course I have no intention of traveling anywhere with it, the weight of the trunk alone would exceed the pounds you’re allowed to travel with when you’re flying commercial. I would have it in my living room and fill it with books. I guess I have to wait until I move into a bigger apartment to get it.
Ray-Ban cat eye sunglasses. No use buying those in the middle of winter; summer get here already!!
Hermes Evelyne messenger bag. Because who says you have to be 50 to wear Hermes?
3.1 Phillip Lim leather two tone motocross jacket.
Sandro leather and knitted jacket.
This obsession with jackets is getting very unhealthy.
