CF Editorial Intern: Brittany Fowler
CollegeFashionista: What school do you attend and what are you studying?
Brittany Fowler: I attend Syracuse University and I am majoring in Magazine Journalism and working towards minors in Sociology and Nutrition. In addition, I’m completing a Fashion and Beauty Communications Milestone.
CF: What is your role as an editorial intern and what is your favorite part of your job?
BF: Every Monday through Friday my job is sit down and read the latest fashion and beauty trends spotted around the world while getting inspiration for my own wardrobe — what more could I ask for? My role as an editor is vast. I line edit posts and ensure they follow both the CollegeFashionista and AP style guides. In addition, I make sure the photos submitted with each post are properly formatted, composed and are naturally lit.
My favorite part of my job is that it doesn’t feel like a job. I love seeing what fashion and beauty trends inspire each Style Guru and how different trends are interpreted differently throughout the world. It’s also very rewarding to see not only myself grow as an editor, but also the Style Gurus grow as writers and photographers.
CF: What are your favorite magazines?
BF: As a Magazine major, I can’t decide on just one magazine as my favorite. I love devouring Women’s Health from front to back, learning about the latest health and fitness trends (I’m addicted to personal fitness just as I am to fashion). In addition, I love to savor Vogue, flip through Glamour and InStyle, skim through Teen Vogue and read Cosmopolitan.
CF: If you could use any store as your personal closet, which store would you choose?
BF: I’d love if I could use Apricot Lane as my personal closet. The boutique is filled with tons of accessories from jewelry to bags in addition to both casual and dressy clothes. No matter what occasion you need to dress for, this boutique will have the perfect outfit with accessories to complement it. With Apricot Lane as my closet, it’d be like playing dress-up everyday.
