CFDA Intern: Leigh King

We have some pretty fabulous interns and Style Gurus here at CollegeFashionista, but we also enjoy spreading the love and getting to know other aspring fashion industry insiders. After all, we are the future of fashion! Enjoy our Q&A with fabulous CFDA intern, Leigh King.

CollegeFashionista: What inspires your personal style?

Leigh King: I find inspiration in so much, but I am most inspired by living in New York.  There hasn’t been a day since I’ve lived here that I didn’t see something worth while.

The best part of my internship is…the people I get to work with.  The experience has been truly invaluable and I love being excited to go to work everyday.

I never leave the house iPhone.

My guilty pleasure is…shopping in the little boys section at Crew Cuts.

CF: If you could live anywhere here, where would it be?

LK: There is nowhere better for me than NYC.

CF: What are three items in your closet you couldn’t live without?

LK: Black skinny pants, chunky knit scarves and worn-in loafers. 

CF: If could go shopping with anyone living or dead who would it be?

LK: Easy. Jenna Lyons.

During my free time I love to…explore the city one restaurant at a time.

CF: Is there a purchase you’re dying to make at the moment?

LK: Several.  If I wasn’t a college student, the new Proenza Schouler PS13 bag would be a shoe-in.

CF: If you could listen to only one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

LK: “Brighter Than Sunshine” by Aqualung.

CF: If you could only wear one color, what would it be?

LK: Heather gray.

CF: So even though you’re a super-stylish intern, what has been your biggest fashion faux pas?

LK: In high school, I used to wear every designer piece of clothing I owned at once and top it off with a pair of Uggs. Charming, I know.

My secret styling tip is…find what fits you and stick to it.

My favorite social media platform is…Pinterest.

I am constantly…taking pictures!

CF: Pet peeve?

LK: In fashion? When people try too hard. The best dressed people always look effortless.

CF: Describe your personal style in one word.

LK: Understated.

CF: What is the coolest project you’ve worked on at CFDA?

LK: There have been so many!

You’ll always find me wearing…skinny pants rolled at the ankle.

I will never wear…never say never, but most likely not anything zebra.
