Hey, everyone! I'm happy to announce that we've just teamed up with an amazing new crew member, Gianna. I thought it would be a great idea for everyone to get to know her since she'll be around, so scroll down to hear her story!

Name: Gianna
School: Fashion Institute of Technology
Major: Advertising and Marketing Communications

Tell us a little about your hobbies and what you do with your free time.
I've been studying theater since I was twelve, so it's has been a big part of my life. A lot of my free time went to performing in regional theater. Recently, I've taken a break from that life. Other hobbies are shopping, reading and obsessing over every fashion magazine for the month, hanging out with friends and getting mani/pedis.

Why Advertising and Marketing Communications?
I've always been a talker, a creative thinker, and I feel like advertising and marketing is an ideal career for someone like myself, with those type of qualities. 

What do you hope to choose as a career path after FIT?
I hope to be working in the world of fashion journalism. Ideally at a fashion magazine, but at this point I'm open to anything!

What would be your dream internship?
Oh my gosh..... Interning at Glamour, Seventeen, Vogue etc. I would literally be happy just being there and fetching coffee!

Tell us your Top 5 favorite brands/stores.
H&M, Necessary Clothing, Urban Outfitters, J CREW, Forever 21.

What is your favorite trend for this Spring season?
Mint! And polka dots. I'm obsessed with polka dots.

What is the item in your closet that you absolutely couldn't live without?
Shoes. I feel like shoes can literally change an outfit. I think a good pair of riding boots in the fall, a great pair of flats in the spring, and a strappy pair of sandals in the summer, can make an outfit.

If you could be any celebrity, dead or alive, who would you be?
This is hard..... Someone no longer with us.... I'd say Judy Garland or Coco Chanel. Alive......... Jessica Alba or Lea Michele (not because I personally like her but I get told at least twice a week that I look like her. So it might be easy to be her).
