Outfits of FIT: Emily Qualia

 

 

FIT’s campus spans one NYC block and meets fashion from corner to corner.

I decided it was time student street style was showcased on a wider basis. This past week it was Emily Qualia’s mix of textured vertical and horizontal stripes that caught my eye. Check it out below.
