My name is Siri Sofie Andreassen, I'm a 20 year old student from Bodø, Northern Norway with a passion for fashion, design, dance and travel. I decided to apply to a high school program in France at the age of 17 and moved alone to Lyon where I studied a full time science program as a "french student" for three years. And yes it was all in french, and no I didn't speak french when I first got there (with the exeption for "baguette", "café" and "chaussures".. évidamment!). My adventure in France is now over and I've moved to Italy where I'm studying product design at IED Milano.
Being a student is no exuse for putting your life on hold. Now is the time to be bold and brave, to find yourself and your voice. Take chances, be confident and dress accordingly. Style isn't about wearing the latest trends or having enough money to buy designer clothing, it's about being confident about who you are and knowing how to express yourself through what you put on in the moring. I know it might be difficult to feel stylish when you're a student; late nights, early mornings, tons of work and an empty wallet isn't always the best combination for an aspairing fashionista (or anyone who wants to look at their best). But I'm here to help you! Let me tell you a little secret: A piece of clothing is just a piece of clothing, what's important is how you wear it. I hope I can show you that it's possible to have both a killer warderobe and discover the world as a student, you just need a good dose of determination, some wanderlust and the right pair of shoes!

Why miss new zucci ?
When my mom was young she started working at Zucci - a stylish fashion store in Bodø. She ended up buying it with a couple of friends after working there for several years and when I was born the former owner and founder of Zucci gave me a necklace as christening gift. It was a golden heart with the words "Miss New Zucci" engraved. He believed I would end up like my mom: as a trendy young lady with a lot of guts and a great sense of style. I hope I'll be able to live up to that one day.
