Merchandise Product Development Graduate Stefanie McKim launched a fashion and beauty blog, Style by Stefana, about a year ago, and has recently launched a jewelry line to connect further with her readers and followers. Stefana Style, based in Los Angeles, offers fashion-forward, affordable jewelry, all hand-picked by Stefanie.
"Being a Product Development major made me well-versed in different aspects of the fashion industry," she says. "I have worked with multiple companies in the last five years and have had the opportunity to work in marketing, creative direction, art direction, and social media. FIDM helped me become well-rounded."
