Several years ago, I had it all figured out. I enrolled in the Fashion Institute for Technology with the full expectation that I’d get my degree and skip on to become an established designer, and just as quickly as I set my sights on that goal, other things got in the way.
Instead of a straight and narrow path, my career has been circuitous, serpentine, bumpy — but above all, educational. Over the past eight years I’ve worked for two fashion designers and two boutiques in positions ranging from Assistant Designer and Account Manager to Merchandiser, Buyer, and Stylist. It’s been a learning experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything.
The one thing that I have been missing over the years is a creative outlet of my own. Which is where this website comes in. This is my space to experiment and explore, critique and praise. I’ll be writting about my favorite designers, at home and far far away, profiling my most stylish friends and colleagues, sharing advice and styling tips, and much more.
Welcome to Romeo Style, my little slice of the web devoted to high fashion, fashion highs, and everything in between.
