Deema is a recent graduate from the University of Alberta, where she aced a psychology degree (like, a 4.0. Yeah). She's a total smarty pants with a rad sense of style, a sparkling charm and a keen interest in her local scene. How could I not invite her to join me in the next chapter of Dress Me Dearly?
Deema will be working hard on all kinds of DMD projects – acting as wardrobe assistant on photo shoots and fashion shows, writing blog posts, pinning like a fiend and coordinating Dress Me Dearly events out in the community.
Here's a few tidbits about Deema, so you can get to know her better:
Why I wanted to Intern with Dress Me Dearly
I have loved Dress Me Dearly for years! Naturally, when the opportunity came up I had to jump on it. I have always respected how DMD celebrates Edmonton fashion and highlights our local businesses and designers. I am so honoured to be a part of it. I can't wait to learn the tricks of the trade, so that I can continue to grow in the fashion world.
Favourite local shopping spot
Floc Boutique on 124th Street.
Biggest fashion pet peeve
When people overlook the importance of fashion. I don't expect everyone to be a trendsetting fashionista, but taking the time to choose an outfit is more important than people think - the truth is your clothes communicate a lot about you.
Easy - a black boyfriend blazer.
Personal fashion philosophy
"If you like it - then it looks good". Anything can be fashionable when it is done with intention.
