Hi, I'm Arlina
Happy first blog post! I'm always curious about the people I buy things from, so I thought it might be fun to share a little about the Pop Sock Shop founders.
Me - Twenty years old and a student at NYU, studying Marketing and Finance. I originally wanted to go to art school (bye-bye RISD/CSM), but fortunately or unfortunately I did a 180. So, now here I am! I try to keep up with my art though, otherwise I'm afraid I'll lose it. I've been using my apartment as a studio with limited success (I'm a messy painter).
Something I'm into that I don't really talk about/but is related to Pop Sock Shop: I'm really interested in space and how people interact with objects. Somehow that translates into how I really love product and package design. I think in the future I'd like to go to grad school to study Industrial Design or UI/UX. We'll see how it goes!
My opinion on fashion: I love clothes, but I'm not sure that I'm really so into "fashion" exactly. Wear what you want and what you love. I think that's really important. But who knows - personal exploration, y'know?
&: I like owning things that have a fun backstory AKA I'm an avid trinket collector/hoarder. If you guys have any cool collections, I'd love to hear about them in the comments!
I'm only half the story - hopefully Dylan writes something about himself soon. Stay posted! Thanks so much for reading (;
