Q&A with Cara:
Hometown: “Corona, California.”
Describe your style: “My style depends on the day. I love the boho chic look, however working at Bebe changed my style. Don't get me wrong I still love my fringe and lace, but now I am wearing bolder colors, and pieces that make more of a statement.”
Favorite brands: “I don't have a favorite brand. I buy whatever catches my eye. However, I love Bebe and F21!”
An icon who inspires you: “Gretchen Rossi! While working with her, it has been so great to learn about her style. She has definitely inspired me for dressy looks, and I have taught her about casual chic.”
Favorite place to eat in DTLA: “My new favorite place is Pieology. It is like Subway or Chipotle.... but for Pizza!”
Dream job: “Celebrity makeup artist, social media manager, creative director for my own company… I plan to be a busy woman!”
Best advice for FIDM Students: “My advice to FIDM Students would be to get involved and make sure everyone knows your name. Get noticed by your teachers, faculty and always remember ‘in sight, in mind.’”
Your hometown’s best kept secret: “My city doesn't have a secret. Corona is quiet boring. That is why I spend most of my time in Orange County or LA.”
Your FIDM experience in three words: “Exciting, educational, and oh-so-fashionable.”
You know you went to FIDM when…: “...you have spontaneous photo shoots and wear 5 inch heels to class.”

More about Cara :
“My name is Cara Rimel. I am a Merchandise Marketing student about to start my fifth quarter. My road to FIDM began when I was a freshman in high school. A representative came to my school and after that I was hooked. I went home and told my parents where I wanted to attend for college. We took a tour of the FIDM campus and from there I began to attend the FIDM Open House events. The FIDM Open House events are an amazing experience. Each time I met new FIDM grads and instructors who taught me even more about possible career paths. I also attended 3 Days of Fashion four times and had the pleasure of working one at the FIDM OC campus. It was fun meeting prospective students just like I was. After four years of being that "prospective student," I began FIDM in the summer of 2013 at the OC Campus. It was so exciting to finally be attending my dream college. At the OC campus, I joined the student council and FIDM Mode, where I met students whom are now my closest friends. My involvement with FIDM has defiantly paid off. A few months ago I was recommended to intern for Gretchen Rossi (Real Housewife of Orange County). I’m involved in every aspect of her business and learning how to run a company. My life at FIDM has been a rush between balancing life, work, interning, projects and homework and I wouldn't change it for a thing.”
