My name is Chris Berneck and I’m a 2nd year Fashion Communication Student at Ryerson University. I was born and raised in a small town in southern Germany, and moved to Canada six years ago. I’m a competitive figure skater and have had the chance to compete at many international competitions. If you’re already wondering if I can do those ‘jumpy spinny’ things, then the answer is yes. Last year I decided to join the varsity figure skating team at Ryerson University and ended up winning the OUA Championships. When I’m not on the ice spinning and jumping around I like spending my time on Pintrest while watching re-runs of Sex and the City.
With the school year having ended and summer fast approaching, it was not only time to rethink my wardrobe, but also to look for new and exciting opportunities within the fashion industry. While searching for internships I was lucky enough to be able to reach out to and meet Fashion Designer Carissa McCaig. I’m super excited to be working as her new Marketing/Social Media Intern and will be writing many blog posts in the next upcoming weeks to keep all of you up to date with the latest hustle and bustle. This means that you should definitely follow all of our social channels— Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (if you don’t already)— to keep yourself in the loop. I hope that all of you enjoy reading this fashion blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
