My name is Emily (but PLEASE call me Emmi) Macintyre, and I am a 4th year here at UC studying magazine journalism and double minoring in fashion design and public relations. I’m also a captain on the UC volleyball team. Fashion has always been such a big part of my life in terms of self-expression, and from being in this class, I can see that Bonnie felt the exact same way. After studying not only her designs but also the way the she incorporated her life into her designs, I view her as such a role model for individuality. She was an innovator in design, one of the first to combine luxury and comfort for women’s wear; what girl wouldn’t love her?!
