Lauren Snyder, 21, truly has a passion for fashion. As a young senior at Temple University, originally from Kutztown, Pennsylvania, Snyder plans to use her intelligent sense of style to change the world someday. Her sense of style is memorable and simple, yet bold.
“I would describe my style as classic with a twist,” Snyder said, “Feminine silhouettes in big, bold prints are a common theme in my wardrobe. I also rely on statement necklaces and cool shoes to take any look to the next level.”
Like many young, aspiring fashionistas, Snyder has had a love for fashion for as long as she can remember. “From playing dress-up as a girl to thumbing through the pages of Vogue as a teen, fashion has always been something that is near and dear to me,” explained Snyder. Throughout the years Snyder realized that her love for fashion has played many roles in her life. Fashion was a form of entertainment, a simple past time and a way to express her personality. As Snyder’s relationship with fashion has evolved throughout the years, she’s hoping to take it to the next level and make a career of it. Snyder always knew she wanted her career to involve the hobby she loved the most. This desire stuck with her when applying to schools and deciding which major is best for her long-term goals. As a current Marketing and Advertising major, Snyder can take her love for street style and fashion journalism and incorporate it into her future career
For over two years, Snyder has been a Temple Style Guru for College Fashionista, in which she scouts out fashionable students like herself and discusses with them how to integrate their style into their readers’ wardrobes. . Additionally, Snyder founded the Fashion and Business Club in November 2012 at Temple University. The organization’s mission is to connect passionate fashion students to each other and the industry that they love. Philadelphia fashion professionals are invited to speak to young students and give them insight about pursuing their dream job. In addition to the lectures, the Fashion and Business Club published The Style Book, a student-run, digital magazine.
“My hope for F&B [Fashion and Business Club] is that it will help shape lasting relationships between Temple students and the fashion industry, to help students learn about and pursue a career they love,” said Snyder. Snyder utilizes every skill and talent she has to pursue her dream in the fashion industry. “Various internships and countless credits later, my love for fashion will continue to guide my career aspiration,” said Snyder.
