Do you like this story?
A Pittsburgh native, Talia came to Fashion Club after working for two FIDM Grads! BTW, she loves the spiked boots trend!
Tell us a little about yourself: I live in Hollywood, so I am always seeing someone or something crazy! I am from Pittsburgh, and moved to Los Angeles three years ago. I am obsessed with my cat. I have too many pairs of spiked shoes. I used to work for FIDM Grads at a cute little boutique in the heart of Hollywood!
Tell us a fun fact about you that not many people know: I was supposed to be named Gina, but when I was born, my dad (without my mother's knowledge) named me Talia. He was obsessed with the Rocky movies at the time and decided I should be named after the actress who played Adrienne—Talia Shire! :)
What is your favorite thing about working on Fashion Club? My favorite thing is interacting with all of the high school FIDM Fashion Clubs! I get to talk with so many awesome students who are doing amazing things in their schools, such as putting on fashion shows and doing charity work! I get to chat with so many interesting people on a daily basis.
What is your favorite FC article or section and why? I love the Street Style photos! It is fun to see what all of the FIDM Students are wearing. Their creativity influences my own style.
Share your secret fashion or beauty trick: Dry shampoo! I use it all the time when I am running late or too lazy to do my hair! My favorite brand is Oscar Blandi that can be purchased at Sephora!
If you could be any fashion designer in history, who would it be? Alexander McQueen. I am obsessed with his clutches with the skull clasps!
