Chic Sundresses Show Personalized Style: Amy Tran

By Ishmam Rahman '14, Contributing Writer

Ishmam Rahman: How would you describe your personal style?

Amy Tran: My style is very simple, structured and sophisticated. I wear dresses a lot with belts. My mom is a designer and a seamstress, so most of my dresses were designed and made by her. I’ve been wearing a lot of dresses since I was little, so that’s what I like to wear now. 

IR: And California is perfect for that!

AT: Yeah, I’m actually from Montclair.

IR: Do you accessorize at all?

AT: Not really. If I do, I wear statement earrings or a statement necklace. But other than that, nothing really.

IR: Where do you normally get your clothes from?

AT: My mom still makes most of my dresses because she knows my style. But if I really like something, I normally get them from Urban Outfitters, Forever 21 or H&M.

IR: Tell me more about your mom, what sort of designing does she do?

AT: We have a company in Vietnam and in France. It’s a family company and we manufacture everything from undergarments to dresses. She also designs for clients that come to her as she works from home.

IR: What are your thoughts on fashion at Scripps?

AT: I think people all have unique styles here. It’s important to experiment with styles to find out what’s right for you. I think Scripps is pretty diverse in styles.
