Meet the Team Behind Fashion Club: Web Developer Elizabeth Koopman
Do you like this story?
Elizabeth is our resident techie. She's not only the web developer for FashionClub.com, but she's an essential part of the FIDM team, too. With a background as a Hollywood TV producer, we are so happy to have her on the FC team. I mean, c'mon—how cool is that!
Tell us a little about yourself: I’m a former television producer who worked for several production companies and studios such as Paramount Pictures, NBC, MTV, E!, E! International, FOX, and Fremantle North America. I love discovering new books and music. I’m constantly hunting for new bookstores and am reading non-stop, which means I’ve always got my Nook shoved in my face. Finding small and/or free concerts is also a fun pastime for me. I cannot tell you all the bands I’ve seen for free that you now have to pay a good amount to see. And at those free shows, you usually get to meet (and sometimes hang out with) the band! I’m also a new dog mama and recently rescued a Shih Tzu named Spumoni whom I took to an LA Dodgers game for the SPCA fundraiser, Bark at the Park.
Tell us a fun fact about you that not many people know: I secretly love filling out long forms like college applications—but not online, only paper versions.
What inspires you? Books, music, art, nature—almost anything can spark an idea for me.
What is your favorite thing about working on Fashion Club? It’s a tie. I love the Fashion Club team meetings when we decide on our monthly themes and fashion shoots. I also love when we get to meet Fashion Club members at the annual DEBUT Pre-Party, and when they become students at FIDM. It's nice putting a personality to the photos I post online
What is your favorite FC article or section? Luxe List. I love seeing what items the team has researched for that month’s theme and adding them to my personal wish list.
Share your secret fashion or beauty trick: Find someone whose fashion sense you trust and consult him or her when having a fashion problem. I’m constantly texting photos of possible outfits to a few of my friends.
If you could be any fashion designer in history, who would it be? Armani or Coco Chanel.
