Meet the Team Behind Fashion Club: Social Media Marketing Manager Larry Del Santo
Do you like this story?
Tell us a little about yourself: I love social media! It is all I do, all day, every day. From reading up about social media on Mashable.com to learning new things from my favorite news sources, celebrities, and brands on Twitter, I'm always busy. I feel like there isn't enough time in the day to read up and learn about what I can be doing when it comes to social media for Fashion Club! Before working with FIDM and FashionClub, I worked in San Francisco as a Marketing Manager for an amazing chocolate company called TCHO. It was tough working there because I had to eat chocolate every day! (Not really, I just got a few cavities because of it! ;)
Tell us a fun fact about you that not many people know: Whales are my favorite animals. I have always loved humpback whales, and as a young child I wrote an unofficial children's book about Humphrey the humpback whale.
What inspires you? A lot of things inspire me, but at the moment seeing all the amazing and creative things that FIDM Students come up with and do every day is astonishing! It makes me want to go to FIDM and learn how to be creative and think outside of the box.
What is your favorite thing about working on Fashion Club? I like that I am the only guy involved with Fashion Club, and I don't have a problem bringing my perspective and ideas in meetings! It's an amazing website, and I am blown away at how well done our photo and video shoots are. I also love seeing what our designer Alexis Chong can come up with in a very short period of time. She's ridiculously talented!
What is your favorite FC article or section? I have to say that I am a pretty big Glee fan, so our Glee prom shoot and series this past year is my favorite so far. Chriselle Lim was amazing to work with, and she hit the inspired looks from Glee characters spot on!
Share your secret fashion or beauty trick: I'm Italian, and tan very easily, but it's always important to wear sunscreen when out in the sun! No matter what, you should always wear it. I also like keeping my hair short so I don't have to do anything with it!
If you could be any fashion designer in history who would it be? I would have to say Ralph Lauren. Hands down the men's Polo line is absolutely amazing, and it always has that classic and preppy look and feel to it, ever since the beginning. Seeing that little polo horse makes me happy!
Check back Friday for another story from the team behind Fashion Club!
