Giselle's Story

My passion is fashion.

I discovered my passion for fashion because I always admired the way the people around me dressed. I feel that your style is part of your personality, it defines who you truly are as a person. Though as I grew up I struggled to have clothes that fit me because they would be either to big or to small. I always wanted to create clothes that would be perfect and stylish for everyone, also affordable. Its not about the quantity you receive at the end of the day, its about the quality you give. I always had these ideas about designing clothes since I was very little, and it has always been a dream for me to become a fashion designer. Becoming a fashion designer is one of my top goals in life. This program can help me begin my future career in Fashion designing.

FIDM 3 Days of Fashion will help me pursue my passion for fashion because, fashion is something I wanted to do later on in the future. This program can help me start that career and accomplish my top goal. Doing something that I love for my career is not a chance everyone gets, this program can look good on my resume and help me get into a college. Having the ability to have a head start of what my future will be is something that I can benefit from and can improve my skills and knowledge about Fashion. This program will also determine, if Fashion Designing is something I really want to do for the rest of my life.

A Note from Ms. Kim, Giselle's Teacher

Giselle has long wanted to explore and act in the direction of her professional interest: fashion design. However, there are very scant resources locally that allow her to take her interest from the realm of theory to action. The FIDM 3 Days of Fashion would allow Giselle to work hands-on in this field and to get to know and speak with people who work in the fashion industry. She will also benefit from meeting youth all over the country and socially moving outside of her comfort zone in order to see whether this career interest is a good fit for her. As she becomes a senior next year and applies to college, this program comes at a hugely important time for Giselle as she prepares to make some very important life decisions following the conclusion of this program.
