Meet Allyson “Ally” Adams, iBeGat.com’s teen fashion editor and go-to gal for style questions and advice:
Allyson “Ally” Adams, a 16-year-old living in Southern IN, wears many hats. She is an incoming junior in high school. She is a Varsity cheerleader. She is a gymnast. She is an active member of her youth group at church, No Limits. She’s a gifted photographer. She’s a volunteer, having worked at a local nursing home. And, she’s an avid lover of fashion and devoted student of style, studying the works and looks of Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel and Edie Sedgwick.
In fact, Ally has been in love with fashion since she was a little girl growing up in Fort Worth, Texas. While most children were playing with their Barbie dolls, Ally was styling hers. She has always been a trendsetter, not a follower. Pursing her passion for fashion, Ally recently took part in “Three Days of Fashion” at the Fashion Institute of Design & Marketing (FIDM) in Los Angeles, CA. Learning the skills of draping, fashion marketing, sketching, textile selection and more, Ally reaffirmed her career aspirations and is looking forward to early acceptance into FIDM—a college that boasts of famous graduates that include: Nick Verreos (“Project Runway” star and current FIDM instructor), Victoria Beckham (famous designer and style icon) and Lauren Conrad (clothing designer and star of “The Hills”) to name a few. Ally plans to double major in fashion design and visual communication. She looks forward to impacting the world for God. Her life verse is Jeremiah 29:11, and she is excited about the plan God has for her life.
