Hello SOTGC community,
It’s a great pleasure to introduce our newest SOTGC contributor who will be writing about fashion and beauty.
Ellina’s interests range from fashion and beauty to food, social media, and entrepreneurship. Her goal is to become a “Jack of all Trades” and loves challenges and making meaningful differences with the companies that she works with and the people that she encounters.
Although most women have a “passion for fashion,” she sees it more than just cute clothes, shoes, and bags. She finds joy and excitement from the details, the construction, and design of couture wear and the practicality and accessibility of ready-to-wear. Ellina’s major influences in fashion have come from her mother and grandmother who have both worked in the styling and fashion industries.
In the future she’d like to gain experience in ecommerce, marketing, and buying and planning within the fashion industry. She also plans on going back to school in order to pursue obtaining my MBA. For now Ellina is enjoying her last semester in college and is on the hunt for jobs in San Diego and the perfect puppy (preferably a corgi!) to keep her company while she starts on her journey to real adult life!
Ellina is a Senior at the University of Maryland with a desire to work in the retail and public relations industry. She has a strong interest in fashion and has worked with brands such as Donna Karan, Nissa Jewelry, Water Vixen Swim and more.
