As a teen growing up Jordan Morin always liked to dress in something unique and different.
“I remember in Grade 10 and 11, every day I tried to wear a different outfit and style different pieces of clothing together, so I always wore something new,” said the Sarnia native.
“It’s really cool how people express themselves through their fashion.”
Morin’s style sense has turned heads: the Northern Collegiate grad is a finalist in the Elle Canada Style Search conducted by the fashion and beauty magazine.
Morin is in her second year at Ryerson University in Fashion Communications, and submitted photos for the contest through the social media app Instagram.
“I didn’t think anything of it really, because I always post outfit photos just for fun, being in fashion,” said Morin, who posts images daily as a portfolio for her fashion ideas.
The people at Elle Canada liked what they saw. They selected one of her photos for the top 15 finalists. From there, fans voted for the top three – and Morin made the grade again.
She and the other two finalists were whisked away for a photo shoot in Toronto, and images were to be published in the Nov. 14 edition of Elle Canada.
The final vote will determine who wins the title and prizes from contest sponsors. A victory would also provide some welcome exposure in the highly competitive fashion industry.
“It was really cool getting into the top three, or to even have people at Elle choose my photo over the others – styled outfit over others, which is really cool.”
