Contributing Writer

Vanessa is a student at Marist College, pursuing a degree in Fashion Merchandising and fueled by a passion for sustainable & ethical initiatives within the fashion industry. She believes that fashion is a social movement, a means of self-expression in its purest form – and that we as a society have both an obligation and the means to more effectively protect the world we live in. Vanessa was born and raised in New England, but her education and curiosity have taken her to incredible places such as Belize, Italy, and Morocco (to name a few). When she's not attending classes, she can be found in the dance studio, on a hiking trail, or supporting local thrift and consignment shops.
