Brielle Saggese Indiana University

“If you’re looking to grow or to change, or if you’re looking for some way for college to shape you that it hasn’t yet, this is the opportunity to find that spark and find that push to be the kind of person you want to be when you graduate.” — Brielle Saggese

Brielle Saggese Paris & Florence

Brielle (@briellesajz) is serious about fashion, and the breadcrumbs prove it. She’s slowly making her way around Europe and determined to make a name for herself in the industry. She’s interned at both PVH and LUCKY BRAND, has passion for art, travel, and food, and it all comes together in her interview.

*Point of fact: It costs exactly €17 to get into the Louvre which = $19.05. (We were trying to figure this out 😂)

Wine tasting, French politics, Portugal, riots, internships, and job searching are also covered.
